Program description

The goal of the three-year Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, is to foster the development of trainees to become knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate pulmonary and critical care medicine clinicians and academicians who are lifelong learners.

To achieve these goals, you are given the opportunity to care for a patient population with an extensive array of pulmonary pathology in a supportive, stimulating and challenging academic environment.

Program highlights include:

  • Diverse inpatient and outpatient populations presenting with both commonly and uncommonly encountered diseases
  • Extensive procedural experience including fiber-optic bronchoscopy (FOB), interventional bronchoscopy and cardiopulmonary exercise testing
  • Dedicated time, mentoring and support for meaningful clinical research
  • Elective rotations to meet your individual training needs
  • Clinical and technical experience with pulmonary function studies, polysomnography and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation
  • State-of-the-art patient care and training facilities


The program fulfills the training requirements as defined by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).


After successfully completing the program, you are eligible to take the exams for dual certification in Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine offered by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
