Fellowship in Advanced Lung Disease and Lung Transplantation

The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA

The University of Pennsylvania Lung Transplant Program is seeking applicants for position in our one-year fellowship in Advanced Lung Disease/Lung Transplantation. The position will begin July 1, 2022 and extend through June 2023. The fellowship goals are to develop the skills required to become an attending transplant pulmonologist, to provide a comprehensive outpatient experience in advanced lung disease subspecialty clinics, and to engage in a scholarly pursuit related to lung transplantation or advanced lung disease. Fellows will work with a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and transplant-trained advance practitioners, nurse coordinators, pharmacists, physical therapists, speech pathologists, social workers, and nutritionists in the inpatient and outpatient settings. Complementing an active role in the clinical services of one of the busiest and well-established lung transplant programs in the country, the fellow will receive high level training through educational opportunities including:

  • Understanding patient selection criteria through active participation in lung selection meetings
  • Post-operative ICU management of the lung transplant patient, including patients requiring ECMO
  • Post-transplant bronchoscopy, including exposure to advanced bronchoscopic techniques
  • Medical management of the potential organ donor
  • Participation in organ procurement procedures
  • Outpatient care of long-term transplant recipients

Applicants should be expected to complete a pulmonary and critical care fellowship by July 2022 in an accredited program.
