The clinical fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University provides both a broad-based clinical experience and rigorous research training. Completion of the three-year fellowship fulfills the requirements for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in both Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine. Additional training beyond three years is encouraged for those seeking a career in basic science or clinical research. The program is designed to prepare physicians for careers in academic medicine.
The training program is based at the Feinberg-affiliated Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. Northwestern Memorial Hospital is the principal teaching hospital for Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and serves as the primary site for clinical training in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program. Northwestern Memorial Hospital has 900 total beds and 150 intensive care unit beds, and features comprehensive, state-of-the-art medical and surgical programs in every specialty and subspecialty. The Jesse Brown VA Medical Center is a 250-bed facility with 24 intensive care beds. Clinical experience is also provided at the 242-bed Shirley Ryan AilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). The research laboratories of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine are located at the Feinberg School of Medicine McGaw Pavilion, immediately adjacent to the medical center’s major clinical facilities.
