During the first year of training, our fellows complete a robust Core Curriculum designed to support and supplement the rotation-based curriculum. The Core Curriculum consists of daily sessions during our Summer Learning Series in July and August, and then continues on a weekly basis for the remainder of the year. These hour-long sessions are a mix of lectures, interactive sessions, and simulation and cover core topics within physiology, pulmonary disease, critical care and procedures. Sessions are led by faculty with content expertise, many of whom are national and international leaders in the field.
In addition to our Core Curriculum, fellows participate in a longitudinal Ambulatory Curriculum, designed to specifically support the Continuity Clinic experience. These 30-minute small-group sessions occur weekly before each clinic and focus on topics relevant to outpatient pulmonary medicine.
The fellowship Core Curriculum and Ambulatory Curriculum are supported by regularly scheduled Conferences, as well as a number of special seminars that provide our trainees with the opportunity for further interaction with master clinicians and scientific leaders in pulmonary disease and critical care medicine.
