Pulmonary / Critical Care Fellowship



Our three-year combined Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship offers a balance between excellent clinical training and research experience. We offer an ideal mix of patients from our urban teaching hospital, University Health Truman Medical Center, and our private tertiary care centers, Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City and HCA Research Medical Center.

Our graduates have pursued successful careers in private practice and academic medicine. For over 40 years, our program has produced some of the brightest and best Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine physicians in the country. Every year we receive applications from highly qualified candidates from all over the country. It is always difficult to select the three best candidates each year. One of the strengths of our program is the quality of the fellows selected into our program. Our faculty takes pride in providing one on one instruction to each fellow. Teaching is one of the most important roles of the faculty. We appreciate your interest in our program. If you have any questions about our program feel free to contact me.
