Class of 2008 Fellows

New Global Health Research Track

We are  p l e ased to announce our global health research track will accept up to one fellow per year beginning in July, 2018. This is a 4-5 year program that includes one year of pulmonary research in Peru, Uganda, Nepal, or other overseas sites. Fellows may add an optional year of classroom instruction in the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation in the Johns Hopkins/Bloomberg School of Public Health, leading to an M.H.S. degree. Fellows will also complete all clinical training to be ABIM board eligible in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Interested fellows should contact Dr. William Checkley, beginning in July, 2017, for more information. 


The primary goal of the fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Medicine at Johns Hopkins is to train the next generation of leaders in biomedical science and clinical care. The  program offers extensive facilities and a diverse faculty committed to clinical care, teaching, and research. About 95% of our graduates since 2005 have taken full-time academic  positions.

During their training, fellows assume a variety of roles. On the clinical rotations they interact closely with experienced faculty to learn the scientific basis for the clinical care of acutely and chronically ill patients. Fellows assume active teaching roles while conducting rounds, providing consultation services, performing procedures, and instructing residents and students. Patient care experience is balanced with didactic sessions on clinical and basic science and career development. During the research experience, each fellow works closely with a mentor who guides the trainee through the development of a laboratory based or clinical research project. Formal training in laboratory methodology, clinical research, epidemiology, biostatistics, and ethics is available during research training.

All fellows are expected to complete a grant application and to contribute to the medical literature, both essential skills for the academic physician. All present their work at local, national, or international meetings. Most fellows stay for additional training. This is either devoted to research, to specialized clinical training in a focused field, or to complete formal coursework in the School of Public Health leading to a MHS or MPH degree.

We believe that new ideas in our field derive from constant interactions between fellows and faculty and between patients, physicians and basic scientists. Fellows learn to express their own ideas and challenge those of their colleagues. They receive the support and mentorship they need to develop the skills to become independent medical scholars and scientists.

Unfortunately, our training grant cannot support trainees who are not US citizens or permanent residents. While we encourage applications from well-trained foreign nationals, such applicants should be aware that only rarely can we invite them for an interview.
