Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program

Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program

The Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship at the University of Louisville adheres to the requirements for Pediatric Pulmonology certification by the Pulmonology Sub board of the American Board of Pediatrics, and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

The goal of our program is to meet the fellow’s career goals through an individualized training program. Fellows can choose to pursue a degree program (MS in Clinical Investigation or Public Health) that includes coursework in the science of clinical research, manuscript writing, grant writing, epidemiology, ethical & policy issues in clinical research, and biostatistics. We will ensure the fellow develops the core knowledge, skills and experience that will enable them to provide children of all ages with pulmonary problems excellence in clinical care. Each fellow will be given ample opportunity to hone their teaching skills, conduct meaningful research, participate in quality improvement initiatives and assume leadership roles in taskforces. We strive to achieve a balanced fellowship experience to include fostering fellow wellbeing. By the end of the Fellowship, the fellow will be able to successfully sit for examination by the American Board of Pediatrics Pulmonary Sub board examination and be confident they are ready for unsupervised practice in the field of Pediatric Pulmonary.
