Why Choose the UW Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship?
The UW Pediatric Pulmonary Center (PPC)
Our fellowship is partially supported by the University of Wisconsin Pediatric Pulmonary Center (UW PPC), one of six centers in the nation funded by the U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau to train future leaders in the care of children with chronic illness. The UW PPC is committed to interdisciplinary teaching and healing while providing family centered, community based, culturally competent, coordinated care.
Outstanding Patient Care
We are affiliated with American Family Children’s Hospital, which admits over 3,700 patients each year from Wisconsin, Illinois and beyond. American Family Children’s Hospital is also home to the University of Wisconsin Cystic Fibrosis Center, a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation-accredited care center that has also been recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of effective and efficient health care for a chronic disease.
Robust Scholarly and Academic Opportunities
Fellows receive protected time to pursue clinical or basic-science research within the division, the Department of Pediatrics, or throughout the University campus. Fellows also benefit from numerous educational offerings, present lectures to the department and interact with medical students and residents on the wards, in conferences and in the clinics.
