Dr. Marik in ICU with Students

Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

Become an outstanding physician, researcher and leader in the field and in the community as a Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine fellow.

What sets us apart?

Fellows in our combined three-year pulmonary and critical care program can explore career opportunities in medicine through a variety of rotations.

Focus on what interests you — research, clinical practice or education — while working with leaders in the field, including Dr. Alexander Levitov, Professor of Internal Medicine, who developed the first nationally recognized guidelines on ultrasound use in critical care.

New hope in the battle against sepsis

Paul Marik, MBBCh, Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, discovered what could be the first effective treatment for sepsis. Sepsis is the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals, and it kills an estimated 8 million people worldwide annually.

Dr. Marik, the EVMS Foundation Distinguished Professor in Internal Medicine, has used the treatment since 2016. It is now the focus of several research studies that are testing the simple, inexpensive treatment in a range of settings.
