The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is an Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited three-year program.
Baylor Dallas has extensive experience in the surgical and medical care of lung transplant, which allows our program to accept patients with complex conditions that other centers may deny.
We accept two fellows per year.
Our program prepares physicians to practice the subspecialties of pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine in complex environments with competency, professionalism and the highest ethical standards. Graduating fellows are expected to achieve dual board certification in pulmonary and critical care medicine.
Training is designed to teach fellows how to increase knowledge and comprehension across a broad array of pulmonary medicine topics, apply accumulated knowledge to the bedside care of patients and evaluate subsequent clinical outcomes in a manner that provides for effective pulmonary consultation services, and demonstrate competency in technical and procedural skills for procedures routinely provided by pulmonary consultants.
Fellows have access to advanced technology and services, including:
We also utilize the Seeger Surgical Simulation Center, which is equipped with SimMan 3G technology as well as bronchoscopy and EBUS simulators.
Fellows receive new admissions/consults, triage patients, evaluate patients, present to the attending physician and provide documentation of consult between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. They also are responsible for seeing established patients prior to the daily intake conference and performing formal bedside rounds. Fellows work with specially trained nurses and technicians skilled in critical care instrumentation, respiratory function and laboratory medicine.
Fellows develop teaching skills necessary to educate patients, families, medical students and residents by attending conferences and faculty development seminars, completing online lessons and observing experienced attending physicians in a teaching environment.
Additionally, fellows attend an annual Critical Care Symposium.
We provide fully funded Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training and accreditation and offer instructor pathway for fellows in Fundamentals of Critical Care (FCC).
Our fellows are required to participate in at least one research project and deliver at least one presentation at one national meeting.
Clinical research opportunities are available in both the outpatient and inpatient settings, as well as the Seeger Surgical Simulation Center. Clinical research requires the successful completion of educational prerequisites from Baylor University Medical Center's institutional review board (IRB), as well as approval process of the IRB.
Current clinical research includes:
