Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Admissions


The Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine welcomes applications for our fellowship programs. We offer 5-7 positions/year in pulmonary and critical care medicine.

Applicants must be board-eligible in internal medicine before starting the fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine. This usually requires that the applicant be currently enrolled and completed a three-year residency or have already completed a three-year residency in an ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine training program in the United States.

We welcome applications from all qualified individuals irrespective of sex, racial or ethnic background, religious affiliation or marital status. We currently accept applications from U.S. citizens, green card holders, and non-immigrant visa holders (J-1 only).


How to Apply


We exclusively use the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship (PCCM), which is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Applications are accepted through ERAS beginning in July each year.

To submit applications through ERAS, applicants must contact the ERAS Fellowship Documents Office and request an electronic token, which is then used for access to the ERAS application site. The following materials must be submitted through ERAS:

  • ERAS application
  • Curriculum vitae (ERAS format is acceptable)
  • Personal statement
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Medical school transcript
  • USMLE results
  • Photograph
  • Your email address
  • A copy of your ECFMG certificate and visa, if applicable



Upon reviewing these materials, applicants with competitive credentials are invited for interviews at the program. You will receive an email/letter/phone call informing you if an interview has been granted. Virtual interviews are conducted from September-October.

PCCM Fellowship program positions are offered exclusively through the National Residency Matching Program.
