The goal of the Pulmonary Medicine Fellowship is to foster the development of trainees into knowledgeable, skilled and compassionate pulmonary medicine clinicians and academicians who are life-long learners. To achieve these goals, you will be given the opportunity to care for a patient population with an extensive array of pulmonary pathology in a supportive, stimulating and challenging academic environment.
Program highlights include:
- Diverse inpatient and outpatient populations presenting with both commonly and uncommonly encountered diseases
- Extensive procedural experience including FOB, interventional bronchoscopy and cardiopulmonary exercise testing
- Dedicated time, mentoring and support for meaningful clinical research
- Elective rotations to meet each individual's training needs
- Clinical and technical experience with pulmonary function studies, polysomnography and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation
- State of the art patient care and training facilities
The Pulmonary Medicine Fellowship at Mayo Clinic Arizona is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
This fellowship results in eligibility for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification examination in pulmonary medicine.
The Pulmonary Medicine Fellowship began at Mayo Clinic Arizona in 2006 and its first trainee completed the program in 2008. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete training in this program annually.
