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.

Candidates from emergency medicine programs must adhere to ACGME Program Requirements to complete at least six months of direct patient care experience in internal medicine, of which at least three months must have been in a medical intensive care unit. Candidates are encouraged to complete these requirements prior to matriculation to allow for more critical care-specific rotations in the first year of fellowship and more elective rotations during the second year.

How to Apply

Applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service 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.

We require the following application materials:

  • ERAS Application
  • Photograph
  • Curriculum Vitae (via ERAS)
  • Personal Statement
  • Three Letters of Recommendation
  • Medical School Transcript
  • MSPE (Medical School Dean's Letter)

  • 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.
