Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowship

James Kim

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) fellowship program at the Tower Health Reading Hospital is a three-year training experience. Our goal is to provide an exceptional program that will successfully train pulmonary and critical care physicians of tomorrow.

We match four pulmonary and critical care fellows to our program every year. The training experience consists of taking care of patients at three different hospitals which include main campus of Tower Health Reading Hospital during the first year of fellowship along with rotations at Pottstown Hospital and Brandywine Hospital during subsequent years. Fellows are also involved in learning outpatient pulmonary medicine with continuity clinics.

Apart from clinical training by our faculty, weekly didactic activities are included to enhance medical knowledge. Fellows will have good exposure to various procedural skills in ICU, pulmonary function lab and in bronchoscopy suite.

Overall, our program is designed to provide the fellow with state-of-the-art training in pulmonary and critical care medicine to acquire the skills necessary for a future career in the field of PCCM.
