Fellowships & Training Programs

The PCCM Fellowship Program was established in 1957 and has recently expanded significantly. There has been substantial growth in the research arm of the program which reflects the sustained growth of both clinical and basic research at OHSU over the past decade.This expansion is aimed at addressing the shortfall of physician-scientists in pulmonary and critical care medicine at a time of unprecedented growth in scientific knowledge, and the application of that knowledge to the care of the sickest patients. The national shortage of qualified intensive care physicians has lead PCCM to add a separate Critical Care Medicine track to the fellowship program at OHSU. We also have an interdisciplinary Sleep Medicine Fellowship program.
The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine fellowship lasts 3-4 years, depending on time spent in research. The Critical Care Medicine fellowship is 2-4 years long. We also have a one year Sleep Fellowship. Training in our Fellowships takes place at the following sites:
- Oregon Health & Science University Hospital (UH)
- Portland Veterans Administration Medical Center (PVAMC)
- Kaiser Permanente Hospital (KPH)
- Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH)
- Divisional research laboratories in the medical school
- Divisional research laboratories at PVAMC
- Associated laboratories in the Department of Biochemistry, the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, and the Oregon Cancer Institute
