Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship




 


WELCOME TO THE FELLOWSHIP
 
Thank you for your interest in our Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Training Program.
 
Please take some time to look over the many opportunities our program has to offer.  We have recently expanded the fellowship from six to nine positions so we are now recruiting three new fellows per year. In addition to increasing the number of fellows, we now have nine full time and three part time faculty members with active recruitment to fill three more approved positions. There have been a number of other significant changes to the program. These include a new Sleep Center housed in the large new outpatient facility that also contains two new pulmonary function laboratories and a new state of the art research bronchoscopy suite. The Medical Intensive Care Unit has been expanded to 24 beds and there is an expanded conference schedule which has been integrated into a completely new curriculum. Further details about the program and the changes can be found on this web site.
 
The program has many strengths but the biggest is the medical center. Pitt County Memorial Hospital offers superb resources for graduate medical education with excellent patient diversity.  This 861-bed state-of-the-art facility, which includes 161 beds on the medical teaching service, has over 13,000 admissions each year spanning from primary to tertiary care. The hospital is a designated Level 1 Trauma Center and provides acute, intermediate, rehabilitation and outpatient health services to more than 1.3 million people in 29 counties.
 
The program produces fellows with a strong clinical background who are equipped to succeed in any environment. The research program is equally as diverse and continues to expand. Our program provides structured educational and clinical opportunities that allow fellows to acquire the knowledge, clinical skills and professional attitudes necessary to be excellent pulmonologists and intensivists.
 
It may be difficult to get the full sense of the scope of our program, our camaraderie and our enthusiasm by viewing our website alone - so please send your application and come and see for yourself.
 
Please feel free to call or e-mail us at any time with questions you may have.
