Fellowships & Training Programs

Pulmonary Radiology Conference
Thoracic radiologist Steve Primack takes fellows through a chest CT during weekly radiology conference.


The PCCM Fellowship Program was established in 1957. There has been substantial growth in the research arm of our 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.

Fellowship Structure

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) fellowship lasts 3 years with an option to continue on for a 4th year to devote more time to research. The Critical Care Medicine (CCM) fellowship is 2 years long.
