Duke University is accepting applications for a one-year comprehensive lung transplant fellowship starting July 2022. The fellowship is based at Duke University Hospital in Durham, NC, a large volume lung transplant center, performing over 100 lung transplants annually.
The program emphasizes achievement of proficiency in management of lung transplant patients through hands on practice, continuity of care and meet criteria for medical directorship. The fellows learn the fundamentals of evaluation of transplant candidates, the listing process and post transplant care of immunosuppressed patients including ECMO and early post op management.
Our program is ideally suited for training candidates in multidisciplinary risk management of complicated patients. In addition, there can be opportunities to tailor the fellowship to get more experience in advanced lung disease like pulmonary vascular disease, ILD and CF.
The program offers a variety of research opportunities depending on the length of the training and career choice. Individuals who complete the training will meet ISHLT criteria for medical directorship of a lung transplant program.
Applicants must complete training in Pulmonary and Critical Care by June 2022. Please apply via email and include: CV (with no unexplained gaps) One-page personal statement, ECFMG certificate (if applicable) and two references.
