Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship

The Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program at Indiana University School of Medicine and Riley Hospital for Children has a strong commitment to the training of academic pediatric specialists in order to ensure the best possible care for infants and children with lung disease and to encourage the teaching and research that will promote such care in the future.

Pediatric pulmonology faculty train future researchers who can apply their knowledge of basic, translational and clinical science to enhance the understanding of children’s respiratory disease. Clinically, the Pediatric Pulomonology Fellowship Program emphasizes excellent care of the whole child and family, whether the child is chronically or acutely ill. Academically, IU School of Medicine graduates are skilled educators who seek new knowledge and who can teach others to do the same. Research of all types is essential to this mission and is fostered in an environment of honest questioning and collaboration.

Learning Environment

The fellowship in Pediatric Pulmonology is one of more than a dozen accredited post-residency training programs at Indiana University School of Medicine offering exceptional training. Fellows benefit from a statewide referral base with a large and diverse clinical volume, a high faculty-to-fellow ratio in a collegial working environment, and department-supported fellowship seminars that provide cross-specialty competency driven education and peer group development.  Additionally, fellows have access to a broad range of mentors available on the well-integrated campus and special academic opportunities that include programs for Masters Degrees in clinical research, translational research or public health; Academy of Scholars Program; and a global health curriculum for clinical and research initiatives.
