In alignment with the Association of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Program Directors (APCCMPD), our national professional society, to ensure an equitable interview process for all applicants, our fellowship interviews will be held exclusively virtually for the 2024 fellowship application cycle. We will not offer in-person site visits. Interview invitations are offered on a rolling basis during the application process. Interview dates offered to those selected applicants are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. The interview day will consist of a virtual visit with a Case Conference, a program overview, interviews, a tour, and multiple opportunities to meet with faculty and current fellows in the program. Interviews will be conducted between late August and October.
