Application Process

Applying to the Fellowship Program

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We DO NOT sponsor H-1 visas.

Because fellows are employed by ECU Health Medical Center, most of the employment process will be done through the Graduate Medical Education (GME) office. Please visit their website for more information on the application process through GME.
