The fellowship program in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine provides opportunities for high-quality hands-on training in all aspects of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
The mission of the program is to train skilled clinicians, physician-scientists, and clinical educators. This is accomplished through intensive exposure to diverse clinical services in the inpatient and outpatient settings, a robust didactic educational program, and research opportunities throughout the college. The section’s focus is complementary to Baylor's mission of excellence in research, education and service.
Basic and clinical research programs at Baylor are funded at more than $208 million annually, placing us among the best of the nation's 125 medical schools in extramural research support. Faculty members within the section serve on NIH Study Sections and American Lung Association grant review committees, as well as numerous editorial boards. The faculty has numerous leadership positions within national scientific societies and participates actively in many national and international scientific meetings related to clinical and basic science investigation.
The clinical activities of the section are based out of many hospitals within the renowned Texas Medical Center including the Ben Taub Hospital, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, and Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. The diversity of experiences gained from the different healthcare systems is one of the most unique aspects of the training program. Clinical experiences include hands-on exposure to lung transplantation, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, interventional pulmonary, lung cancer, asthma, COPD, occupational disorders, and much more. Critical care training includes management of ARDS, sepsis, cardiothoracic surgical experience at the Texas Heart Institute, post-LVAD care, and many other aspects of critical care medicine. Procedural experience and training is secondary to none. The combination of an excellent clinical curriculum and exceptional research opportunities make Baylor's Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship program one of the best programs in the country.
Applications for both fellowship training programs will be accepted through ERAS. For further information, please contact Ellen Walls and check our admissions section.
