About the Program

About the Program

Welcome to the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. We appreciate your interest in our program, and invite you to take a look around to learn a little more about us.

One of the major goals of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is to prepare physicians for careers in academic medicine. The overall goal of our fellowship is to provide fellows with a complete well-rounded training program designed to enhance their clinical skills, scientific knowledge and provide the tools necessary to develop their research skills.

A strength of our fellowship training program is the balance we provide in terms of clinical training, research opportunities and our educational curriculum.

Clinical Experience

Clinical Experience

Clinical Experience

The fellowship program consists of a minimum of 18 months of clinical exposure, the majority of which occurs during the first year. We have a large and diverse patient population and currently have eight core clinical rotations per month. In addition to these rotations, F2s rotate with the surgical critical care team and F3s rotate with the thoracic surgical critical care team and the neurologic critical care team.

Night call is fulfilled via a night float rotation. When not on night float, fellows have no overnight call responsibilities. F1s do approximately two weeks of night float, F2s four weeks and F3s four weeks. Two fellows split a four-week block of night float and when not on service, that block the fellow has no clinical responsibilities except for his or her own continuity clinic. Night float and all clinical rotations are structured to comply with ACGME duty hour guidelines.

Research Experience

Research Experience

The goal of the division’s research training is to allow fellows to pursue a project in their area of interest while providing them with a high quality experience that fosters intellectual development. We are committed to providing whatever support is necessary to allow our fellow to be successful in their research careers.

Divisional Conferences

Conferences and Benefits

Conferences and Benefits

There are several pulmonary and critical care specific conferences scheduled each week, which cover both clinical practice and research topics. All of the fellows attend these conferences.
  

Fellows must attend at least 70% of conferences over their three-year fellowship in order to be eligible for graduation. The overall goal of our conferences is to foster learning and engender discussion about topics pertinent to the practice of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. 

We strongly believe in teaching based on the principles of evidence-based medicine, defined as the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. Our conferences include the following:
