The principal goal of the fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center is to prepare physicians for productive careers in academic medicine. As faculty, we take pride in the quality of clinical and research training in our program. All faculty members in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Division are committed to teaching, both at the bedside and in the laboratory. The high ratio of faculty to fellows permits an unusual level of individual attention and we encourage each Fellow to choose a mentor to help guide his/her academic development. The program provides the flexibility to pursue individual areas of interest, in both clinical work and laboratory investigation.
The University of Rochester School of Medicine has long been recognized for its patient-centered teaching of internal medicine, and has one of the most highly regarded internal medicine residency programs in the nation. It is also a leading research institution, providing a breadth of opportunities for laboratory investigation. This combination of advantages makes our program an ideal environment for trainees interested in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. This is reflected in the successful and productive careers of our graduates.
We invite you to review this material and to submit an application for admission to the fellowship program via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). If you have questions, please feel free to telephone our office (585-275-4861) for further information.

APP Fellowship Program in Critical Care Medicine
The University of Rochester Medical Center APP Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is a twelve month post graduate NP/PA Fellowship program which involves training in all aspects of Critical Care Medicine. This is an intensive clinical program which will prepare NP's and PA's to develop the procedural skills and clinical knowledge necessary for managing critically ill and critically injured patients. The program includes exposure to critically ill and injured patients in each of the adult ICUs (Surgical, Neuromedicine, Cardiovascular, Medical, Burn/Trauma) as well as exposure to a number of specialties caring for critically ill patients.
Fellows will work with Critical Care faculty and APPs with a wide variety of expertise in critical care and will be on the cutting edge of health care delivery as they train to work within the University of Rochester Medical Center and its affiliates. It is anticipated that the fellows will show clinical growth, procedural competence and a high level of proficiency in clinical reasoning by the completion of the fellowship.
