Apply for Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellowship

Our Programs

Thank you for your interest in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowships at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston, Texas. We offer a three year categorical Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine fellowship (PCCM) as well as a two-year categorical Critical Care Medicine (CCM) fellowship training program that prepares our graduates for the challenges and rigor of the exciting and evolving field of intensive care medicine.

All of our fellows receive in-depth didactic, ambulatory, and bedside education that prepares them for both pulmonary and critical care national certification. The mastery of procedural skills attained by our fellows is impressive, and our program’s focus on clinical research, quality improvement and patient safety complements the strong clinical foundation of our training curriculum.  Furthermore, our fellows have ample opportunities to publish during their training.
