Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship

Welcome to the University of Connecticut Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program at Connecticut Children’s. Our program combines the best of two worlds-individualized fellow attention with broad exposure to a wide range of pediatric pulmonary conditions and research opportunities. Our diverse faculty are passionate about all aspects of pulmonary medicine including asthma, pulmonary complications of sickle cell disease, interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and aerodigestive conditions as well as neuromuscular respiratory disease. Our current and former faculty are key players in our hospital community as well as key players at a national level (i.e., myself on the CF Foundation Quality Improvement Committee for Newborn Screening and Michelle Cloutier, senior author of 2020 NHLBI asthma guidelines). Despite the many academic and clinical accomplishments of our faculty, the accomplishments of our fellows remains a key priority for our division. Our goal is to nurture and encourage each fellow to follow their own individualized path to success and provide a roadmap for continued success throughout their careers.

If you are looking for individualized attention, rigorous (and sometimes boisterous) academic discussion with unprecedented patient care experience, come join us in Pediatric Pulmonology.
