Pulmonology - Fellowship


 
View from Denver's City Park

The Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has a history of training numerous successful pediatric pulmonologists who now practice around the country. Many of these individuals are recognized as outstanding leaders, both locally and nationally. Our faculty is committed to providing outstanding fellowship candidates exceptional educational experiences. During the three-year fellowship, there are both clinical and research experiences that generate the knowledge, skill and technical expertise necessary to become an excellent academic pediatric pulmonologist. We foster a collaborative environment in all aspects of clinical care and research. Ultimately, our goal is to have the fellowship candidate become a leader in academic medicine and enhance the health of patients with pediatric lung disease through educational, clinical and investigational activities.
