Pulmonary/Critical Care Program

Our Mission

We strive to foster an environment that cultivates fellows into strong leaders, who are prepared to practice anywhere they desire. We provide exposure to complex and intriguing critical care and pulmonary cases, interactive lectures and modules, and a perfect blend of autonomy and supervision. Lastly, we have a unique quality of community and dedication to each other. We are here to help each other grow, both academically and personally -- which, in turn, creates outstanding, well-rounded physicians. 

Program Overview

The Jefferson Health - New Jersey Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship recruits three fellows annually and is fully ACGME accredited. We have an academically challenging program, with a heavy clinical focus. We are looking for highly competitive candidates who are strong both academically and clinically.

As the major clinical site for RowanSOM, we are proud to be part of a major teaching site in South Jersey. Teaching and teamwork are highly valued, as our fellows work with other program fellows, residents, and medical students on a daily basis. 

As an academic center, Jefferson Health - New Jersey has 3 unique campuses, where our fellows have different rotations allowing for a diverse population and pathology experience.

We are dedicated to educating the best community hospital and academic-based pulmonologists and intensivists.
