About our Fellowship Program

Welcome to the Stanford Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship.  We offer a 3-year ACGME accredited fellowship designed to provide outstanding clinical and research training in an intellectually vibrant and highly supportive learning environment.  Our fellowship’s four distinct tracks are structured to offer trainees experiences that align with their unique career goals.  We also offer an additional 4th year of subspecialty training in Lung TransplantationPulmonary Hypertension and Sleep Medicine which fellows can apply for in their third year.


All fellows receive 18-20 months of clinical training in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine with core rotations at Stanford University Hospital,  the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and the Palo Alto VA Health Care System. By rotating at these hospitals with distinct patient populations, fellows are exposed to a wide breadth of disease states and pathology. Our elective courses provide the opportunity for the additional in-depth study of specific areas of interest. Our fellows are also provided ample time to explore outstanding research opportunities at Stanford. Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program and for exploring our website. Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information. We are currently recruiting fellows for the class of 2018, as part of the NRMP match.
