Advanced training in pulmonary care
The Prisma Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is a fully accredited traing program with an energetic group of board-certified faculty members, many of whom are double- or even triple-boarded in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine.

Our program is close-knit, and we consider our fellows to be junior colleagues and treat everyone in our division as a family. We have weekly lectures and case conferences, monthly journal club and board review sessions, and hands-on training in the Simulation Center.
This complements the clinical experience, which is where the best learning occurs.
The primary clinical site for the fellowship program is Prisma Health Richland Hospital, a 650-bed tertiary referral medical center.
At Prisma Health Richland Hospital, fellows are trained in the care of patients who are critically ill and those who have pulmonary disease. PHR is also the site of our outpatient clinic, which cares for both general pulmonary and subspecialty patients. The fellows’ continuity clinic takes place here.
Our fellows also rotate on the Pulmonary Consult service at Prisma Health Baptist where they are trained by our academic faculty. Baptist is a large community hospital less than 10 minutes from the main campus. In addition to caring for patients on the consult service, fellows also participate in advanced airway procedures in the new state-of-the-art bronchoscopy suite at Baptist.
Our expectation is that our graduating fellows are well-prepared to enter independent practice, be it in the academic or private-practice setting. Our training program is comprehensive and includes instruction in advanced procedures, to include endobronchial ultrasound, tube thoracostomy, and percutaneous tracheostomy.
Our goal is to train excellent clinicians and clinician-educators who are truly expert in the field of pulmonary and critical care medicine.
