The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship at Temple University Hospital is one of the strongest academic programs in the nation. The fellowship continues to provide cutting-edge clinical and research experience for our fellows. Since 2019, the fellowship has:
- Trained 10 physicians per year.
- Expanded training sites to provide fellows with experiences at urban academic and community-based locations.
- Provided fellows with advanced experience in distinctive subspecialized clinical areas of focus.
Critical Care in a Community
Our training site at at Temple University Hospital–Jeanes Campus has expanded fellows’ critical care airway experience in a community setting and provided exposure to the Fox Chase–Temple University Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant Program. Through this experience, fellows develop an invaluable understanding of the critical care needs of these patients, and a broader depth of lung pathology as it relates to hematological malignancies.
Hands-on Training in Interventional Bronchoscopy
We have added Fox Chase Cancer Center as a training site where fellows have a more focused educational experience in lung related malignancies. At this location, fellows develop a deeper understanding of these conditions, and active hands-on training in interventional bronchoscopy procedures.
Advanced Curricula and Transplant Training
Program faculty continue to expand curricular focus to reflect demands of the field today and trends of tomorrow. New additions include:
- An expanded airway management program providing didactic and hands-on training, led by Dr. Matthew Gordon and Dr. David Manoff.
- A new track in Advanced Pulmonary Disease and Lung Transplantation for fellows interested in a career in lung transplantation. This additional training provides expanded outpatient experience in patient management before and after transplant, opportunities in transplant research, and an understanding of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) testing.
- A wellness and social media committee, headed by Dr. Parth Rali, highlighting the academic success of fellows. Follow us on Twitter @TemplePCCM and Instagram @templepccm to get real-time updates on what our fellows are doing both in and outside of Temple.
