Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellows rotate on inpatient and outpatient services at the SFVA. During their Pulmonary Medicine rotation, fellows will participate in chest diagnostic clinic, sleep clinic and ALS/neuromuscular clinic. They will also act as member of the SFVA Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) and perform procedures on the bronchoscopy and pleural procedures services. On the pulmonary service, fellows learn though immersive clinical experiences and close 1:1 work with attending physicians. In the Intensive Care Unit, fellows lead a multidisciplinary team in a mixed medical, surgical, cardiac, closed-format ICU. The ICU experience includes a structured daily educational curriculum. A highlight of the curriculum is the weekly clinical simulation session.
