The Division’s dynamic fellowship program in pulmonary and critical care incorporates clinical activity at four hospital sites: Fairview-University Medical Center, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis VA Medical Center, and Regions Medical Center. The program includes extensive critical care training and dedicated educational experiences in sleep disorders and tuberculosis.
Research training is provided to pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral M.D. and Ph.D. fellows through a NHLBI training grant with Dr. David Ingbar, Principal Investigator.
The training has three major curricular domains:
- Cell and Molecular Biology
- Bioengineering and
- Clinical Research Leading to a Master's Degree in Public Health or Clinical Research
This effort includes University-wide collaboration with faculty across many schools and departments. Trainees are strongly encouraged to obtain advanced degrees (Ph.D. or M.P.H.) through established joint pathways. The Division also interacts closely with the Lillehei Heart Institute’s educational programs.
The composite training grant faculty centered at the University of Minnesota offers an outstanding educational opportunity. There are established interactions across multiple schools, departments and centers, including the Center for Immunology, Cancer Center, Stem Cell Institute, Clinical Outcomes Research Center, Bioengineering Institute, the School of Public Health, School of Nursing, College of Biology, College of Veterinary Medicine and College of Pharmacy.
