Education

The Pulmonary & Critical Care division offers two ACGME-accredited fellowships: a 2-year Critical Care program and a 3- or 4-year combined Pulmonary and Critical Care program.

Critical Care Fellowship

The critical care program is designed for candidates who anticipate devoting the majority of their future clinical effort to the care of patients admitted to intensive care units. Through cross-disciplinary experiences in the medical, surgical, burn/trauma, and neurologic ICUs at Strong Memorial Hospital and in the mixed medical-surgical ICU at Highland Hospital, our fellows graduate capable of providing superior care to any critically ill patient, regardless of diagnosis, acuity, or setting.  Our trainees are active participants in academic projects that develop their skills as leaders who improve patient care at a systems level through educational, research, and quality improvement initiatives.

Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship

Fellows in this program gain clinical and research experience in pulmonary and critical care medicine. Clinical rotations include the ICUs at Strong Memorial Hospital, Highland Hospital and F.F. Thompson Hospital; Pulmonary Function labs at Strong Memorial Hospital and Mary Parkes Center for Asthma, Allergy & Pulmonary Care; the UR Medicine Sleep Center; and the Interventional Bronchoscopy Clinic at Strong Memorial Hospital. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work in the lab with faculty in basic science and clinical research. This program also offers fellows a unique opportunity for a fourth year of training supported by a T32 training grant from the National Institutes of Health for multidisciplinary training in pulmonary research.

How to Apply

We invite you to 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.
