Fellowship Program

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston is a fully accredited program. In existence since 1982, there have been 91 fellows who have completed the training program. The program offers a three-year combined fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine, with an optional 4th year, and has five positions available per year. At the end of the three-year fellowship, the applicant is eligible for the American Board of Internal Medicine certification in pulmonary disease and in critical care medicine.

The goal of the fellowship is to train future thought leaders in the field. This is accomplished through world-class clinical training in Pulmonary and Critical Care, and by engaging fellows in research and other scholarly activity under the guidance of high-quality faculty mentorship. The Pulmonary and Critical Care curriculum consists of three to four years of combined structured clinical rotations and protected research time. A high degree of flexibility is maintained in the program so the fellow can design a personalized clinician researcher or clinician educator track. Eligible fellows interested in academic careers may obtain a Masters in Clinical Research.

Clinical training occurs at the MUSC Medical Center, which includes Main Hospital, Ashley River Tower, and the nearby Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center. Ambulatory training is also available at the Hollings Cancer Center and MUSC outreach clinics in North Charleston and Mount Pleasant.

We will have a one year Critical Care Fellowship position available starting in 2020, for ABIM Critical Care certification. Please contact Sophia Zimmermann or Lynn Schnapp, M.D., for more information.
