Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Fellowship

Program Overview

The Houston Methodist Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Fellowship Program is fully accredited by ACGME and accepts two new fellows each year. The program is designed to develop the careers of future colleagues and leaders in community and academic pulmonary and/or critical care practice. We structure our training program to meet the goals of each individual trainee, with a focus on developing core competencies in all aspects of pulmonary diseases, critical care and research. The ACGME core competencies and milestones are achieved through a required set of rotations, a didactic curriculum, conferences, and elective rotations designed to broaden the base of knowledge and facilitate high quality, cost effective clinical practice. Our fellows, faculty, and program are continuously evaluated to ensure success in achieving these competencies, goals and objectives.
