Pulmonary Critical Care

13 Fellows
Comprehensive 3-Year ACGME-Accredited Fellowship

The University of Tennessee Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine fellowship program is one of the best clinical programs in the country. We have graduated over 100 fellows in the past few decades, who have gone on to private & academic practices throughout the country.

Our three hospitals expose us to diverse pathology that enables well-rounded and robust training in Critical care and superb training in Pulmonary medicine both the usual as well as less common pulmonary problems including interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary arterial hypertension etc.

Our services are fellow driven, providing the autonomy with adequate supervision, promoting organizational and leadership qualities from the beginning. Our rotations are busy, providing hands-on patient care experience to the fellows in training enabling them to be full-fledged pulmonologists and intensivists by the end of their three year training.

One of the primary missions of our fellowship program is to carry fellows through a rigorous training system that excites them about the science and practice of our profession and prepares them for the future of their educational dreams.

It is indeed a noble act to take care of patients in the critical care unit, saving people's lives, providing the comfort and care not only for the patients but also for the families who at times suffer more than the patients. When it comes to the pulmonary side of things, nothing is better than getting people to breathe better. We take care of patients with a variety of conditions including Asthma, COPD, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, Sarcoidosis and other interstitial lung diseases etc.

Our job as faculty is to prepare you for a career in pulmonary and critical care medicine, whether it be private practice or an academic career. This is the era of exploding knowledge base no matter what you are trying to learn, and pulmonary and critical care medicine is no exception.
