Application Process - Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship
The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Maryland, Baltimore welcomes applications for our comprehensive fellowship program.
Applicants must be Board Eligible in Internal Medicine prior to starting our Fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. This usually requires that the applicant is either currently enrolled in and will complete a 3-year residency or has already completed a 3-year residency in an approved training program in Internal Medicine in the United States prior to fellowship. The University of Maryland Medical Center does sponsor J-1 visas; however, other visas are not sponsored for fellowship training. Applicants with competitive credentials are invited for interviews at our program.
Our PCCM fellowship program and division are committed to promoting and championing diversity, equity and inclusion. We welcome applications from all qualified individuals irrespective of gender, racial or ethnic background, religious affiliation, or marital status. All positions will be offered through the National Residency Match Program. The program currently offers 5 general PCCM fellowship positions and 1 NIH/NHLBI PCCM fellowship track position per year. Applicants may apply to either or both programs.
