Application Process

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Training Program at Columbia University participates in the Medical Specialties Matching Program. 

We accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) application system.  Applications for our fellowship are reviewed on a rolling basis.

A complete application packet includes:

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

Columbia University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin.  It has a dedicated, enthusiastic, and successful affirmative action program.


The interview is an important part of our application process and by invitation only. We will be conducting interviews on selected Tuesdays and Fridays from the beginning of September through the end of October. Applicants visiting Columbia University will meet with members of the Fellowship Selection Committee and spend time with current fellows.

If you have any questions about our program or application process, please feel free to contact us:
