Jamaica Hospital offers an intensive two-year fellowship program in pulmonary medicine for physicians who have completed a residency in internal medicine. The fellowship program is tailored to meet the needs of its future providers and works to develop the skills needed to successfully practice the broad spectrum of pulmonary medicine among all segments of the population.
Our Department of Pulmonary Medicine offers a case mix of inpatient and outpatient services in a variety of settings, for mild and advanced disease conditions. Fellows will have the unique opportunity to assess and evaluate patients on our inpatient medical floors, as well as our clinic, emergency room, medical intensive care unit (MICU), intensive care unit (ICU), and the private offices of our physicians.
Fellows are closely supervised by attendings and will rotate through several busy clinical services, including our on-site sleep laboratory, pulmonary consultation service, bronchoscopy service, ICU, and pulmonary laboratory. Additionally, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in robust clinical research projects. They will see initiatives through from inception to completion and will take part in multicenter trials, investigative initiated studies, and quality improvement projects.
Lastly, we offer our fellows a comprehensive education program, where conferences, case presentations, didactic lectures, research conferences, and our journal club are included into the curriculum.
