Fellowship Program

Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program

Program Overview

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program at the University of South Florida, Morsani College of Medicine is a combined three-year program designed to provide opportunities to learn the clinical aspects of each of these areas of medicine. As a leading program in Florida, we train the best Pulmonary and Critical Care specialists in the region, by exposing them to a rich academic environment where teaching and scholarship are valued, and where highly advanced, complex care is delivered by world-class experts.

Our inpatient training occurs at three sites

 

Tampa General Hospital is a 1,041-bed hospital located in downtown Tampa, Florida. A tertiary care center, it provides highly subspecialized services including lung transplant, pulmonary hypertension management, specialized interventional pulmonology services, and more.
Moffitt Cancer Center and Hospital is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida. It provides specialized outpatient and inpatient oncology services to cancer patients, including interventional pulmonology services and intensive care services.
James A. Haley Veterans Hospital is a Veterans’ Administration hospital based in Tampa, Florida. 

Fellows do one half-day of outpatient clinic per week. During the first year, they are based in a clinic that focuses on the most common pulmonary referral conditions, including dyspnea, airway disease, and pulmonary nodules.

During the second and third years, the fellows have the option of dedicating their clinic time to subspecialty clinics in the area of Interstitial Lung Disease, Infectious Pulmonary Disease, Sleep Disorders, Airway Disease, Pulmonary Hypertension, or Interventional Pulmonology.
