Clinical Tracks

Clinical - Educator Track

For fellows in the clinician-educator track, each fellow is matched with a clinical mentor who helps design an enrichment program to develop an area of expertise during the 14-16 months of enrichment time during the fellowship.   Projects pursued during this time include leading quality improvement initiatives, focused educational training, and enrichment electives in an area of clinical expertise including lung transplantation, pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung disease and cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular intensive care, and interventional pulmonary medicine as well as structured training in invasive procedures, radiology and ultrasonography.

Subspecialty Clinical Track

Fellows selecting this clinical track will become experts within a subspecialty in pulmonary and critical care medicine so that they may bring their knowledge to bear at an academic center requiring these specialized skills.  Clinical subspecialty strengths at Stanford include pulmonary hypertension, lung transplantation, interstitial lung disease and cystic fibrosis, and interventional pulmonary medicine.  Fellows will be paired with a faculty Mentor within the subspecialty and spend their 14-16 months focused on enrichment rotations, quality improvement, and research relevant to the field of specialty. Fourth-year non-ACMGE fellowship positions are also offered in pulmonary hypertension and lung transplantation.
