Yale Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship

Welcome to the Yale Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program website! Our program was accredited in 1991 and over 30 fellows have trained in our program. We participate in the match and have one new fellow per year. The fellowship training program is 3 years. There is the option (with application and matching) to do an additional year of sleep medicine training.

All incoming trainees must have successfully completed a 3-year pediatrics residency program to be eligible for our fellowship program. Additionally, the residency must be an ACGME accredited program to be eligible for the American Board of Pediatrics pulmonary board examination. Fellows must be US citizens or hold a J-1 or H-1B Visa to be eligible. Foreign trained physicians must have successfully completed all parts of the ECFMG examination prior to their start date.

The goal of the Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program at Yale New Haven Hospital is to provide trainees with the most complete, up-to-date educational experience possible in the field of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine. We aim to create specialist physicians who are adept at all areas of activity of an academic physician including clinical care, research, and teaching. In addition to offering outstanding clinical training with a diverse population of patients and a wide array of respiratory problems, the fellowship program offers four distinct pathways for scholarly activities: Clinician Educator (medical education), Quality Improvement, Global Health, and Investigation (clinical, translational, or basic science research). These pathways allow fellows to pursue their career interests and hone their scholarly activity skills in a particular area during their training. Fellows are encouraged to seek mentorship from across many disciplines that Yale has to offer. Additionally, our fellows are taught by a diverse faculty with expertise spanning the breadth of pulmonary and sleep medicine.

If you are looking for a training program in an academically focused environment with opportunities to pursue your passion for pulmonary medicine, Yale is for you!
