The Board of Directors of the AABIP lists the following fellowship programs (listed alphabetically by institution) as a service to the members of the AABIP and the pulmonary and critical care community. While the AABIP endorses a full year of training to achieve comprehensive training in Interventional Pulmonology, we acknowledge that specific skills can be obtained in less than 12 months. We encourage applicants to any fellowship program to have a clear understanding of their goals of additional training, as well as the specific details of the program to which they are applying.

Many of the centers listed under the fellowship training programs on this website, as well as some additional sites, have agreed to use the National Residency Match Program to facilitate the matching of individuals applying for fellowships in Interventional Pulmonology to specific programs. Please refer to the NRMP Website for the IP match dates and deadlines.

We encourage applicants to any fellowship program to have a clear understanding of their goals of additional training, as well as the specific details of the program to which they are applying.
