Research & Training - Fellowship Program
Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program
Skills acquired during research training are among the fundamental tools for developing critical thinking and preparing for a career, whether in academic medicine or in clinical practice. All fellows are required to participate in a research project that typically spans the duration of training. Fellows initially choose a research mentor and then either join an ongoing study or create their own. In addition to hypothesis-based investigations within the Division, we encourage interdisciplinary research that takes advantage of the extensive research resources available at Rutgers in both the clinical and basic science departments. With ongoing advisement from the research mentor, all fellows are expected to have completed a research project by the end of their training.
Fellows typically present their findings at regional and/or national meetings, and are encouraged to publish in peer-reviewed journals.
Dedicated research time is available during fellows’ elective months.
We believe fellows can receive valuable supplementary training from educational opportunities outside the University. Therefore, each fellow is provided with funds to attend at least one national thoracic meeting per year during their second and third years, as well as special conferences and meetings related to their research.
