Welcome to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center’s Pulmonary Fellowship. Jamaica Hospital is a nonprofit community hospital that cares for a diverse and multiethnic Queens community.  The facility operates a Level I Trauma Center, treats approximately 120,000 patients a year in its Emergency Department, and serves a receiving hospital for John F Kennedy Airport.

Our two-year pulmonary fellowship is for medical residency graduates, who are seeking advanced experience in treating patients with pulmonary diseases. The fellowship program, therefore, develops clinicians who have a vast understanding of the various forms of lung disease.

The Department of Pulmonary Medicine offers a multitude of comprehensive services in order to meet the various pulmonary needs of our patients. Working in our department promises a great learning experience. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our faculty and facilities.
