About the Program
The fellowship is a combined program with Alameda County Medical Center in Oakland, California, and fellows will receive clinical training at both medical centers. They receive training in all aspects of pulmonary and critical care medicine including transplant, cystic fibrosis, advanced lung diseases, pulmonary rehabilitation, sleep medicine, immunocompromise complications, mechanical ventilation, and trauma. The two medical center locations provide an excellent mix of patients and a wide exposure to many clinical disorders. The fellowship strives to provide participating fellows the highest quality training by providing compassionate, evidence-based, high-quality, cost-effective care to adults.
Fellows have the opportunity to manage both inpatients and outpatients that exhibit the full spectrum of pulmonary and critical care diseases from a variety of disciplines including general internal medicine, surgery, transplantation, trauma, neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, and obstetrics. This experience takes place in an educational setting under appropriate supervision by qualified attending physicians. CPMC and ACMC have collaborated to provide a fellowship program that provides the ultimate in patient exposure variety.
