Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine, and we strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply. Enhancing the diversity of our fellowship program, to reflect the diversity of the patient population we serve, is a priority for our program.


The interview is an important part of our application process and by invitation only. We will be conducting interviews via Zoom on selected Tuesdays and Fridays from the beginning of September through the end of October. Applicants will virtually meet with members of the Fellowship Selection Committee and spend time with current fellows.
