About the Program

The Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics includes three years of training with one new fellow accepted each year. Applicants must have first successfully completed three years of training in general pediatrics in an accredited residency program.

We seek to develop the academic leaders of the future by attracting, recruiting, inspiring, and training intellectually curious individuals to become innovators in the field of Pediatric Pulmonology.  We will do so by providing the environment for a fellow to discover and develop their own strengths in the fields of research, teaching, and/or clinical care.

Our program will provide the fellow with a comprehensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of pediatric breathing disorders and make the fellow familiar with the unique needs of children with chronic lung diseases. In addition, fellows are taught the scientific method of critical thought and analysis, and are trained for a career in academic pulmonary medicine.

The new University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, opened in early 2017, adds additional exceptional opportunities for trainees. The state-of-the-art UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital is Iowa’s only comprehensive children’s hospital and academic medical center.

This program fulfills the requirements of the American Board of Pediatrics Sub-board of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine and is accredited by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
