Clinical Tracks

Clinical - Educator Track

Each fellow in the clinician-educator track is matched with a clinical mentor who helps design an enrichment program to develop an area of expertise during the 14-16 months of clinical elective time. Projects pursued during this time include leading quality improvement initiatives, focused training in medical education and curriculum development, and electives in an area of clinical expertise such as lung transplantation, pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, or cardiovascular intensive care. 


Quality Improvement

Fellows have the opportunity to engage in initiatives to improve care delivery at Stanford through the Healthcare Innovation and Cost Savings Reinvestment Programs, and are encouraged to submit their work to Stanford's yearly Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Symposium.


Medical Education

Fellows with an interest in medical education are encouraged to pursue certificate training through the Clinical Teaching Seminar Series and to participate in didactics for Stanford medical students through small group facilitation of yearly "lung labs". Additional formalized educational opportunities exist in curriculum development for medical students, physician assistant students, and the PCCM fellowship.
