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.
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.

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:
Fellows Case Conference
MICU Ultrasound Rounds
Resident Chest Conference
Interstitial Lung Disease Case Conference
Sarcoid Case Conference
