Residency applications for the University of Vermont Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program at UVM Medical Center are submitted via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).

The Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program at UVM Medical Center participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

We will accept applications from July 1, 2016 to October 12, 2016. All interviews are scheduled from the end of July through the end of October. Earlier visits maybe possible under special circumstances and will depend on the availability of the faculty. Once we receive all of your documents, members of the Fellowship Selection Committee will review your completed application.

Based on review of the application, we will invite selected applicants by email to come for an interview. Interviews are generally conducted on Thursdays and Fridays. Interview days are selected to maximize the applicants' exposure to all aspects of our program. Special interview days can be arranged upon request.

Materials required from all applicants

  • Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement
  • Dean's Letter
  • Transcripts
  • A minimum of three (3) recent letters of reference from direct supervisors
  • Successful completion of both Steps 1 and 2 of the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or Comlex

We invite up to 4 applicants at a time to come and interview. Plan to spend most of the day with us. We typically have the applicants come in the night before. The interview day consists of meeting with the Program Director and a variety of the faculty throughout the day, a tour of the hospital and facilities, attendance at conference or rounds, and lunch with the fellows. At the end of the day the applicants usually meet with the Program Director or someone from the Fellowship Selection Committee.

We think you will find our fellowship program to be a great blend of clinical excellence and academic achievement, all in a beautiful and collegial environment. Thank you for your interest!
