About the Program

Broward Health North’s Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program’s mission is to train outstanding Pulmonary and Critical Care specialists who advance our field as leaders in clinical medicine, science, and education. The program is designed with emphasis on clinical evaluation and management of patients with acute and chronic lung diseases as well as critical illnesses. The fellows will gain expertise in the broad range of different pulmonary pathological processes and critical care medicine. To gain expertise in pulmonary procedures (including but not limited to bronchoscopy, thoracentesis, and needle aspiration), learn consultative skills and strengthen their academics through clinical rounds, conferences, and review of pathologic and radiologic material. This will help to develop competent, capable, and proficient Pulmonary Critical Care physicians who will serve our area by providing pulmonary and critical care services to our community and at the same time provide great educational opportunities to our fellows. We provide clinical training in areas with diverse patient populations. This falls in line with Broward Health’s mission of providing patient care for our community, increasing access to high quality, timely care for members of our community and educating our future physicians.

The Broward Health Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program aims to train competent pulmonary critical care fellows to be proficient in diagnosing and managing a broad range or pulmonary and critical care diseases in addition to utilizing certain procedures to establish diagnoses and treatment plans (i.e. Bronchoscopy and Thoracentesis). During the fellowship training the fellows will be involved in research and use evidence-based medicine for all treatment protocols. When fellows are done with their training, they will be able to support and provide much needed Pulmonary and Critical Care services to diverse communities.
