Introduction and Overview
The Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship Program is a 3-year program designed to provide the fellow with the education, training, and clinical skills necessary to pursue an academic career in pulmonary and critical care medicine. Teaching facilities include the USA Medical Center in downtown Mobile and the Mobile Infirmary in downtown Mobile. Providence Hospital in west Mobile also performs sleep studies and is supervised by a pulmonary faculty member certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine.
All fellows will participate in research during their 3-years of training with the intent to train academic physicians. Extensive research time is provided in order to maximize opportunities for career interests to develop. Fellows may choose mentors and projects ranging from clinical research to basic science research in the Center for Lung Biology on the main USA campus. Fellows are expected to present their research at local and international conferences and prepare manuscripts for publication. Fellows will also be expected to write grant applications whenever appropriate.
There are currently six fellows in our Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Training Program. The University of South Alabama program participates in ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service). Two pulmonary/critical care fellowships are available each year on a competitive basis. ERAS opens to applicants July 1st. Interviews are conducted from late August through October.
