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.

Fellowship Tracks

We offer two separate tracks with different matches. Please note that fellows cannot switch tracks after acceptance.


Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Tracks


How to Apply

All applications are processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). 

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 15th

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). International applicants with J-1 visas who intend to return to faculty positions in their own countries following fellowship training may be considered, although, they would be required to provide their own financial support.

Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. We strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds as we believe that our faculty and fellows should reflect the incredible diversity of the patients we care for. 
More information about diversity in the University of Washington Department of Medicine can be found here. Fellows are invited to serve on the Department of Medicine Diversity Council and the Network of Underrepresented Residents and Fellows.


Fellowship applicant interviews occur between late August and October and are filled on a rolling basis. Applicants meet with members of the Fellowship Selection Committee and speak with current fellows. We do our best to have applicants meet with faculty with which they share clinical, research, and/or education interests.
