The Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program at the UConn School of Medicine and Connecticut Children's is designed to train academic pediatric pulmonologists to pursue investigative careers in pediatric pulmonology and to become skilled clinicians capable of caring for children with all types of pulmonary disease. To accomplish these goals, the fellow is exposed to both clinical and basic science research and to patients with a wide variety of pediatric respiratory diseases. The fellow is also instructed in effective teaching techniques, in the methods of design and execution of research, and in medical statistics and pulmonary physiology at both an introductory and advanced level. The fellowship program is thus focused on preparing the fellow for an academic career in pediatric pulmonology.
Diversity and inclusion are foundational elements of the University of Connecticut Pediatric Fellowship Programs at Connecticut Children’s. Consistent with this focus we pursue diversity in all its varied expressions, including but not limited to, gender, race, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, and gender identity; with the goal of providing an educational environment that fosters the success of learners who are representative of the population of Connecticut, and a clinical environment that provides high quality healthcare to the myriad communities of the State.
