Application Process - Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine accepts applications for the Critical Care Medicine fellowship during the summer of the year prior to matriculation. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or have a J-1 visa, be U.S. residency-trained, and be board-eligible or board-certified in Internal Medicine and/or Emergency Medicine prior to starting our fellowship. 

Applicants must meet ABIM policies to later qualify for board certification.  Applicants must apply through ERAS. The program currently offers 4 positions per year.

How to Apply

We exclusively use the Electronic Residency Application Service, or ERAS, which is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Applications are accepted through ERAS beginning July 1st of the year that the applicant is applying (i.e., 12 months prior to anticipated start of fellowship training). We do not participate in the Match.

To submit applications through ERAS, applicants must contact the ERAS Fellowship Documents Office and request an electronic token, which is then used to access the ERAS application site. We require that the following materials must be submitted through ERAS:

  • ERAS Application
  • Photograph
  • Curriculum Vitae (via ERAS)
  • Personal Statement
  • Three  Letters of Recommendation
  • Medical School Transcript
  • MSPE (Medical School Dean's Letter)
  • USMLE Transcript and Results
  • If applicable, a copy of your ECFMG certificate and Visa.

Interview invitations are sent via email and are conducted during the fall. Reduced rates at nearby hotels are available.

If you have any other questions, please contact us.
