Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Fellowship


Program Director: Christian J. Woods, MD

The MedStar Health/Georgetown-Washington Hospital Center Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is a three-year clinical and research training program. Accredited by the ACGME, the fellowship provides trainees with a broad and thorough understanding of the conditions encountered in the clinical practice of pulmonary and critical care medicine.

At the end of three years, fellows will have the education and experience to:

  • Formulate and execute diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for relevant conditions in pulmonary and critical care medicine;
  • Function as a clinical educator in an ACGME training program;
  • Conduct independent research

As a large and very busy tertiary care hospital in the nation's capital, Washington Hospital Center provides excellent training opportunities in pulmonary medicine, medical critical care, surgical critical care and cardiac critical care. Washington Hospital Center serves as the primary clinical training site and is complemented by rotations at the National Institutes of Health, Inova Fairfax Hospital, Children's National Medical Center, University of Maryland, and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center has a long history of training pulmonary and critical care fellows. In addition to individuals in our training program, fellows from the National Institutes of Health, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and the Uniformed Armed Services programs rotate through the hospital's pulmonary service, medical intensive care unit, surgical intensive care unit and coronary care unit to take advantage of the rich and diverse learning experiences.
