Pulmonary / Critical Care Fellowship
The Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship is a full-time, 36-month training program that includes didactic learning, patient care training and procedural training. The program is hospital based. Valley Hospital Medical Center has excellent patient volume and scope, and provides a superior environment for training in diagnosis and management of complex and common disease processes in a wide variety of patients.
Ambulatory experiences are structured, supervised, and adequate to develop skills in ambulatory patient management in a continuity of care environment. The Continuity Clinic is adjacent to the Hospital with supervision by the Program Director and faculty. Fellows develop their own patient panels and follow them throughout their training.
Welcome from the Program Director
As Program Director, I work cohesively with core clinical faculty to structure an evidence-based comprehensive curriculum to facilitate competency in the Pulm/CC field.
The Fellowship is ACGME accredited and follows the requirements set forth by ACGME. At all times, the fellow’s patient care activities are supervised, monitored, and evaluated by designated faculty. The Program Director keeps close contact with faculty and fellows to support, advise, and evaluate their progress.
The Fellowship adheres to the ACGME policies and standards on supervision, performance evaluations and duty hours. Two fellows are admitted to the program each year for a total of six fellows. Development of teaching skills will be an integral aspect of training, with teaching and supervisory responsibilities for junior fellows, residents, and medical students.
Graduate Medical Education staff provides full administrative support for the Fellowship. Valley Hospital Medical Center provides salary, benefits, educational stipends and medical malpractice for the fellows.

It is important to plan well ahead because an agreement with your GME program is required as well as obtaining a training license from the State of Nevada.
All medicine sub-specialty fellowship applications must be submitted through ERAS. Visit the ERAS Fellowship Documents Office website. Please follow their directions regarding the required documents. We will review all ERAS applications and contact qualified applicants in the early Fall. Interviews will be conducted throughout the Fall season.
