Why study at NGMC?

Northeast Georgia Health System provides a unique opportunity for fellowship training. Our community-based hospital system serves over one million people in 19 counties across northeast Georgia.

Our fellowship program is designed to offer a comprehensive training program that combines experience with diverse inpatient and outpatient populations, simulation training, case-based learning and an extensive didactic curriculum. Fellows are encouraged to pursue scholarship and research to contribute to the field of pulmonary and critical care medicine. At the end of the three-year fellowship, fellows will be board eligible in pulmonary and critical care medicine and will have the training necessary to enter careers in academic medicine or clinical practice.

How many fellows do you accept each year?

We have six position to fill each year.

What is your ideal applicant?

We seek a diversity of interests, goal and backgrounds. Our goal is to train individuals that want to advance our field while providing for their community. It is not necessary to have a slew of publications or prior research experience in order to have your application seriously considered. However, your application should show a record of scholarship and leadership and you should be ready to build on that.

Do you accept fellows outside of the Match?

No. We participate in the National Residency Match Program.

I just want to do Critical Care. Do you have a critical care fellowship?

No, our Fellowship is solely a combined Pulmonary and Critical Care training program.

How is my application reviewed?

Applications are reviewed by two faculty members, and strong candidates are invited for an interview in September or October.

What research opportunities will I have?

Research is an integral part of fellowship training. Fellows will have plenty of research opportunities within the disciplines of pulmonology and critical care medicine under the supervision of a faculty research mentor and the GME research team. Fellows are encouraged and expected to be active members of local and national scientific communities. Fellows interested in quality improvement or medical education will have the opportunity to participate in upper levels of training in one of the CoRE tracks according to their interest.

Do you sponsor any visas?

Yes, only J-1 visas through ECFMG.
