Welcome and How to Apply
Welcome! The University of Washington Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship program is committed to creating academic leaders, scientists, and scholars in pulmonary and critical care medicine. We provide great breadth of clinical training, unparalleled research opportunities, and a unique mentorship program. We look forward to meeting you.
We offer three separate tracks with separate matches and applicants will only be invited to interview for one track. We strongly discourage applying to multiple tracks.
- Physician-scientist track (5 fellows/year)
- Clinician-educator track (1 fellow/year)
- Clinical track (1 fellow/year)
How to Apply
All applications are processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Select the Physician Scientist or Clinician Educator Track when applying; we strongly discourage application to both tracks.
Your ERAS application must include:
- Completed application form
- Personal statement addressing career objectives
- 3 letters of recommendation (1 must be from your Residency Program Director)
All application materials, including all supporting letters, must be submitted no later than August 1st.
Please note that as our fellowship program is primarily supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents (green card).
Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
In alignment with the Association of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program Directors (APCCMPD), our national professional society, and to ensure a uniform interview process that is equitable to all applicants, our fellowship interviews for the applicants in 2022-2023 will be held exclusively virtually. We will not offer in-person site visits. The full recommendation is available here.
Fellowship applicant interviews will occur virtually in September and October and are filled on a rolling basis. Applicants who are invited to interview will receive a link to a website with more details about the virtual interview process. Applicants will meet with members of the Fellowship Selection Committee and faculty who share their clinical, research, and/or education interests. We invite applicants to join our virtual "happy hour" events to speak with current fellows who can give insight into their experience in the program and Seattle.
