Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program | Overview
The field of Pediatric Pulmonology is a broad one and New York Medical College and its affiliated hospital, The Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, offer a vast panorama of clinical and research opportunities. To optimize the educational experience, each fellow is encouraged to take an active role in conjunction with the program director in designing his own program.
The Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship adheres to the requirements for Pediatric Pulmonology certification by the Pulmonology Subboard of the American Board of Pediatrics, and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The goals of our three year program are to provide:
- A base of scientific skills and expertise that will ultimately allow fellows to become independently functioning and funded investigators
- Skills to provide expert clinical care for infants, children and adolescents with disorders of the respiratory system
- A solid knowledge base and skills to guide, instruct and teach others the fundamentals of lung function and clinical care
- To build administrative and time management skills
