Application Process

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Training Program at Columbia University participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) Specialties Matching Service.

We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) application system. Applications for our fellowship are reviewed on a rolling basis. All application materials, including supporting letters, must be submitted in ERAS no later than July 31.

A complete application packet includes:

  • ERAS application form
  • Statement of personal and career objective
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation
  • ECFMG Certification (for foreign medical graduates)
  • USMLE Scores (for foreign medical graduates)
  • Photo (optional)

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine, and we strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply. Enhancing the diversity of our fellowship program, to reflect the diversity of the patient population we serve, is a priority for our program.


Interviews are a vital part of our application process, and we look forward to meeting you. Please note that interviews are by invitation only, and applicants will receive invitations via ERAS. Fellowship interviews are conducted via Zoom on selected Tuesdays and Fridays from early September through late October. Applicants will virtually meet with members of the Fellowship Selection Committee and spend time with current fellows.
