ResearcherThe 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.
