The Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is a three-year ACGME-accredited training program designed to train individuals to become outstanding skilled clinicians and accomplished scholars in academic pulmonary & critical care medicine.

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine consists of approximately 21 fellows and over 40 full-time faculty members. Fellows spend two years in clinical training, followed by one or more years of protected, mentored research time to participate in basic science, translational, or clinical research. Opportunities for participation in the NIH-sponsored T32 research training grant are available to fellows in the program. A fourth year of training and beyond are encouraged, and accommodations will be made to suit individual goals.

The UCSD Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). Fellows typically sit for the ABIM subspecialty board in Pulmonary Disease during their third year of fellowship. At the conclusion of their training, fellows will be eligible to sit for the ABIM subspecialty board in Critical Care Medicine.
