The Children's Mercy Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program is focused on training fellows to become successful academic pediatric pulmonologists. Our fellowship program strives to equip fellows with the skills required to become future leaders in education, research, quality and safety, and medical administration.

The division of Allergy, Immunology, Pulmonology and Sleep Medicine has undergone significant growth in recent years. We have increased the number of physicians in the division, expanded existing programs and developed new programs to provide an integrated approach to care for children from birth to young adulthood with a wide range of respiratory and sleep conditions. Along with exposure to busy outpatient clinics, fellows can participate in numerous multi-disciplinary clinics and rotations. We strive to provide fellows with a broad range of clinical experiences at one of the nation's premier free-standing academic children's hospitals.
