Pulmonary Fellowship Training
A major mission of the Boston University Pulmonary Center is to train Pulmonary and Critical Care academicians for careers in clinical, translational, and basic science. Our goal is to provide a training environment that is characterized by broad clinical and research opportunities, collegiality, and flexibility. Supporting a diverse group of fellows is central to our mission. We offer an unparalleled breadth of rigorous clinical and research experiences which fellows can tailor to meet their individual interests and career goals. Clinical training at Boston Medical Center, the largest safety net hospital in New England, and the Boston VA hospital, provides our fellows with substantial and varied experience in pulmonary and critical care medicine. Research activity is coupled with a unique mentoring system to ensure that fellows are guided through the process of developing a project and ultimately a career that is suited to their particular needs and interests. The Boston University Pulmonary Fellowship has been supporting fellows through a T32 program that has been continuously funded by the NIH since 1976, Biology of the Lung: A Multidisciplinary Program (NIH T32 HL007035), currently directed by Co-PIs Darrell Kotton, MD, and Joseph P. Mizgerd, ScD, to provide training in basic, translational, and clinical research sciences.
