    I don't know . . . I kind of think they know if they want to spend YEARS doing research, like you said . . .

    Strong, very well balanced (between pulm and cc) more clinically orientated program - although, there is plenty of opportunities for clinical research if you look for it, their program PD is an up and coming pneumonia researcher (VAP and HCAP), with another well known COPD guy at the VA (he had a recent article in Crit Care and Resp Med, along with the COPD lady at UMinn VA on out-pt management of COPD which everyone interested in pulm should read, Oct or Sept 2010, forget which). Their division chief is a former WashU guy and pulmonary HTN guru, so if you like the right side of the heart . . . New staff from Mayo and Cleveland Clinic. Plans for a sleep fellowship (but not ready to go yet).

    Hi Folks

    Applied to 30 programs.
    I am a IMG PGY-2 at community program.
    Boards 82/80/80
    No publications, but have poster and research in the works

    No interviews yet, not sure if I have a chance.
    I have to admit, getting a little anxious.

    1 rejection from Emory/

    This place looks great, any feedback would be appreciated.

    Could anyone list the good programs which provide a nice balance between ICU and Pulmonary medicine. I did see a list of good ICU only and Pulm only programs in this thread but could not find a list for a good combo.

    I think the question is a little vague . . . anywhere where they have excellent ICU, they have good pulm, and anywhere they have excellent pulm they have good ICU.

    ICU, outside of standouts in technology and research, is an ICU. See sick patients get better at seeing sick patients. An ICU is an ICU is an ICU . . .

    Pulm is really what makes the combined fellowships stand out against each other. And you need to ask yourself what you want to see and do. Do you want to learn how to bronch like crazy - laser and stents and valves. Or do you want exposure to cystic fibrosis, or do research in IPF? Is transplant important to you?

    Again I have to disagree but this time with JDH71. I honestly have no ideas if I want to get into research. Having never done it due to lack of opportunities at my home program I am unable to decide. I think for those of you that have been exposed to this then you will have a better idea but for those of you like me that have literally never done anything related to research I think it would be difficult and foolish to rule it out or in. I decided to go to a program that would expose me to world class research so I can decide if academics is truly for me or if I should stay in a more clinical position. Some of us need to actually do something before deciding whether we like it or not.

    Congrats on all the interviews guys and keep your heads up cuz they will keep rolling in through April!!

    I certainly think this is certainly a reasonable approach if you really don't know. Most people applying DO know. Everyone applying out of my class knew if they wanted to do research, stay in academics, go for an extra year of fellowship, etc.

    If all you want to do is bronch like crazy, take care of sick people in the unit, and make a lot of money doing it, you DO NOT NEED a big name academic program.

    agree with jdh. The other thing is that sometimes one changes mind. I wanted to do sole academics while I was in my 2nd year of residency but as I have been exposed to Pulm/CC now; my desires have changed a little bit. I still dont want to do bench research for sure; but private practice which seemed a total no no at the time is something I am seriously considering now. So things change. The bottom line is that you need academic center experience to stay in academics and wanting to do it for rest of your life. For the rest of us, any program with good clinical exposure and pathology; it should do.

    I applied to a good number of programs, but there is no way I can interview at more than 10. What's a good number to shoot for so as to improve chances of matching, 8 vs 6 vs 12? And, how do you decide which interviews to cancel (not that I plan on canceling any just yet)? Not all the websites are particularly informational and helpful.

    Thanks!

    I have the same situation, I too applied in 40+ programs, which I think was an overkill. I was following the last years thread and it seems 10 programs were good enough to match, but again you never know!!!! But to interview at more than 10 programs would be freaking expensive and tiring. Please help us with your suggestions VJWDO, JDH71, MOOZY....

    I personally accepted and scheduled all interviews until I got to 10. Then as each new interview came in I looked at the 10 I already had and if based on reputation, location, and other factors important to me, I liked them more then I would bump the lowest program off my list and cancel the interview. I repeated this as each new interview came in. For the programs that were not as good as the ones on my top 10 list I would just decline that interview right away. I know this is hard to do given the fact that we haven't actually interviewed at the programs yet but thus is what you have to do to keep it down to 10.

    Hope that helped.

    Question about interventional pulm - what procedures does it encompass? Is there enough training in pulm/critical care or do you need further training? Are there specific interventional pulm training progs?

    Thanks!! :D

    8 to 10 is probably actually too many, but most of us get nervous, and have about enough time and money to go to that many. Most people probably only need 5 or 6 realistically (AMGs with solid CVs probably less). I'd have to go through the match stats from last year and see if they posted that kind of information and I don't remember that specifically last time I looked.

    I've heard stories about peeps applying like 3-4 years out from residency with a bunch of abstracts or case reports or other associated research in Cardio, GI, and Heme/Onc, only to have a personal statement that goes on about how pulmonary and critical care is the only specialty for them . . . if this is you, you will probably need more programs on your list, sorry, the paragraph above is most likely true for the first time applier and I'd wager almost 100% true for most applying in their second or third years of residency.

    I did 9 last year, and I think I did that many because these were places I WANTED to check out. I did my pre-homework and applied to places that had some cool things going on that I wanted to check out, or had the kind of research I was interested in, etc.

    I also triaged the invites as they came in based on time/money constraints and things that the program had to offer. If things didn't work out or were not particularly stand-out compared to where I was already going then I cancelled.

    Interventional encompasses things like lasers, stenting, placing valves, EBUS, rigid bronch, etc.

    Most of your university programs offering EBUS will probably give you enough to that you'll be able to do that when you're done, but the more specialized procedures will likely simply need an extra year to feel comfortable with them. There currently is no formal sub-fellowship with a board cert, but I think that's the future. Many bigger university places are keeping at least one fellow around who is interested for an extra year doing these kind of procedures, at least at most places I'd run into a fellow who'd be doing an extra "interventional year".

    I dont get it, why is having research in cards, gi, or heme/onc a minus for such a multi-disciplinary field as pulm/CCM?

    It's not a "minus" per se, but based on how much time people have in residency for these kinds of things, it screams, "This wasn't my first choice of career fields" - you are not the prettiest girl but I'll date you anyway . . .

    Congratulations Aryan3!

    As far research on Cardio, Hem Onc etc when applying for Pulm goes.. How about there are lot of pretty girls out there and I dated a couple but I found you the pretiest?!! Plus I agree- the good thing about this field (Critical care)is that you need to know about all the other fields as well- infact the more you know the better you will be in your clinical decision making skills. In my experience people who love medicine per se are the ones who end up enjoying applying their brains in the ICU coz after all its not always about procedures! So why not appreciate the fact that wanted to do research not just in Pulm or Critical care but went ahead and explored other fields too.

    So I am assuming no one knows any thing about Tufts Medical Center as far as PCCM goes... :confused:

    I don't know much first hand, but they were well represented at the CHEST meeting in Vancouver this November. Sounded like they were doing some pretty cool stuff.

    Or it could be "i was a little undecided before and finally realized the most multi-disciplinary specialty was the best choice for me."

    Anyway it doesn't seem to me that pulm/ccm would be such a cutthroat competitive field to get into that programs should get too picky from this standpoint. Maybe my perception is off...

    I can only report what's been told to me by a program director. I think I'd probably feel the same way. It's a little insulting, especially if it's not addressed in the personal statement.

    I'm an old grad from a university program. I've been practicing in a community hospital (hospitalist) for past 4 years with lot of exposure to ICU. no research in PD-CC but did some research in other specialty in my residency with 2 abstracts and posters. scores in 90's. green card.
    i applied to 35 combined PCC and 10 CC only.
    so far 2 interviews in both:
    CC: Mayo and UPMC (UPITT)
    combined: Alleghaney and Beth Israel, Newark.
    rejections: Emory and Indiana.
    my questions:
    1- any feedback about the above programs
    2- can I do all my interviews (assuming i will have more, hopefully) by mid-April, or usually some programs tend to interview very late
    3- i know my chances are less than fresh residents, what do you think?

    Hello everyone,

    Been following the forums for a while, thought its time I put in my 2c

    IMG/Univ affiliated community hospital
    99's in steps 1 & 2, upcoming chief resident
    5 posters, 3 papers (mostly case reports, nothing mind blowing) during residency
    On H1 (which absolutely sucks for fellowship application)
    applied wide, 5 rejections yet
    IV's from Brown and MUSC

    Think the visa's gonna be a big issue. Hopefully things will perk up by mid-feb

    Thanks everyone for all the great recs
