I am truly honored to be one of the inaugural graduates of the UICOMP Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowship and feel confident and prepared to practice in both inpatient or outpatient settings with ease. The staff and leaders of the fellowship are extremely supportive and encouraging, helpful and willing to mold fellows into excellent attending physicians. We have a 100% board pass rate thanks to well-prepared lectures, attendings who prioritizing education and study time, and supportive leadership. I have encountered a wide breadth of pathology in our diverse patient population and have had hands-on experience with procedures and patient care in various settings. At the end of my 3 years, I would not have chosen another program for training and am thankful and excited to be joining as faculty. — Preeti Patel, M.D.
