How to apply:
The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program uses the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges. We do not accept other forms of applications. Since our program is funded in part from a USA NIH training grant, we do not accept applications from those who are not USA citizens or permanent residents. ERAS will open for us to view applicants in August 2012.
Application must be made through ERAS. Their website is located at:
Additional notes on the application:
1. Letters of recommendation are vital in our assessment of applicants. We require a minimum of 3 letters; up to 5 will be accepted. Because we find the following to be the most salient and helpful, we require:
- A letter from your internal medicine department chair or residency program director.
Also useful would be a letter from any senior faculty with whom you had meaningful contact especially your Pulmonary Division Chief or the Pulmonary Fellowship Director.
Otherwise, the most helpful letters will be from faculty who can speak to your attributes, performance, and potential in clinical and investigative endeavors.
2. Under most circumstances, Dean's letters and transcripts from medical school will not be helpful. Unless unusual circumstances warrant this, we prefer not to receive these.
3. We suggest that your personal statement should give us insight into not only who you are, but who you would like to be and how you envision that your fellowship experience will foster your development.
4. Information regarding conditions of appointment as a clinical program trainee at The University Of Michigan can be read here.
Application Process Timeline for Fellowship beginning July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2016.
We offer a 3-year, combined pulmonary/critical care medicine fellowship only.
Due to our involvement in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), we are unable to consider any applicants who are not registered for the subspecialty match.
Because portions of fellowship training may be funded by our NIH Training Grant, fellowship applications will only be accepted from individuals who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents (i.e. holders "green cards").
