Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

Become an outstanding clinician, researcher and leader by joining the Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine fellowship program at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

What sets us apart?

At EVMS we believe that fellowship training in pulmonary and critical care should not have a “one-size-fits-all” approach. We believe that an educational program should be tailored to meet each fellow’s needs and career goals. In addition to our three-year Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship, we also offer a two-year Critical Care fellowship track for Internal Medicine or Emergency Medicine physicians. We are one of only a handful of programs to offer three-year tracks in Nephrology/Critical Care and Infectious Diseases/Critical Care.

Additionally, we have been approved as a pilot site for a combined three-year fellowship in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine. Fellows have flexibility in their rotation schedules to pursue individual interests such as certification in critical care echocardiography, honing clinical skills through additional elective time, participating in research, or pursuing certification in global health. Whatever your career goals may be, we can help you get there.

You will have the opportunity to work 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, and Dr. Michael Eggert, nationally recognized expert in pulmonary hypertension, and director of the region’s only accredited pulmonary hypertension center. Conduct research with NIH funded research teams at EVMS and Old Dominion University.
