The Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program is a three-year program offered for advanced, subspecialty training beyond the residency level. The program is designed to provide pediatricians with extensive training and experience in research (basic, translational or clinical), clinical care and diagnostic procedures, leading to board certification in pediatric pulmonology. It provides an extraordinary environment for the development of pulmonary clinicians and physician-investigators and leaders.

Our program is supported by National Institutes of Health training grants (T32), which have strict citizenship requirements. Thus, individuals applying to the Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Training Program should be a citizen or a non-citizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for training on a J-1 or other qualifying visa.

The following categories of applicants are eligible for consideration for appointment to the Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program:

  • Graduates of medical school in the U.S. or Canada accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and who have successfully completed or are in the process of completing residency training in pediatrics.
  • Graduates of medical schools and residency outside the U.S. and Canada who have completed Steps 1, 2, and 3 of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), recently received a currently valid certificate from the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), or possess a full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in a U.S. licensing jurisdiction and have completed or are in the process of completing pediatric residency training. Applicants must be on a J-1 or other qualifying Visa.
  • American citizen graduates from medical schools outside the U.S. and Canada who have successfully completed the licensure examination in a U.S. jurisdiction in which the laws and regulations provide that a full and unrestricted license to practice will be granted without further examination after successful completion of a specified period of graduate medical education.

All applicants must provide the review committee with the following:

  • Completed electronic (ERAS) application
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Three letters of recommendation or completed verification of qualification forms

Fellow stipends range from $76,999 to $82,839 per annum, depending on previous training. The cost of living in St. Louis is 6% lower than the national average with all the fun and culture of a big city readily available.
