Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our newly ACGME-accredited three year Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine Fellowship (PCCM) at Naples Community Hospital.
NCH Healthcare System encompasses two comprehensive hospital campuses in Southwest Florida with a total of 739 hospital beds. The system produces abundant clinical volume as well as diversity in patient population and pathology that is ideal for fellows training in PCCM.
The primary training site offers a full range of critical care exposure for trainees including medical, surgical, cardiothoracic, and neurosurgical ICU. The fellow will also have an extensive exposure to a variety of pulmonary disorders including specialty clinics in pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung disease, sleep, lung nodules and cancer and airways diseases.
The educational purpose of the fellowship program is to provide a well-rounded training environment that will prepare each fellow for a career in pulmonary critical care medicine through excellence in patient care, scholarship, innovation and leadership.
We are committed to prepare fellows to possess the cognitive knowledge, procedural and interpersonal skills, professional attitudes and practice experience necessary to become a practicing pulmonologist and intensivist both within and outside of our specific medical community.
We are excited about the training and opportunities you will receive and hope that you will consider our fellowship.
