Timothy Scialla, Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellowship Program Director

Message from the Program Director

Thank you for reviewing our website and showing interest in our training program. Our top priority is the professional development of our fellows. This consists both in extensive education in the core principles of pulmonary and critical care medicine and individualization of training to match our fellows’ unique interests.

Although I became the Program Director in July 2020, I have been working closely with fellows in PCCM since I started on the junior faculty at the University of Miami in 2011. I have now worked with over 50 fellows at 4 institutions and bring to this position those varied experiences.

I appreciate that there are many paths open to our trainees.

My leadership style includes the following:

  • Patient and fellow safety come first!
  • We will be committed to a culture of excellence. We will make ourselves accountable. We strive to do the right thing, for the right reason, at the right time, and in the right way.
  • We are committed to a culture of diversity. We learn the most from those with whom we have the least in common.
  • We believe in collaborative leadership. This may mean having to listen for what you do not want to hear and watch for what you do not want to see.

Please look around the website and review our various clinical rotations, conferences, and research opportunities. Review the biographies of our current faculty and fellows as well as past fellows. I am certainly happy to answer any additional questions you may have about the program.

We hope you will consider applying to our program and we look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Timothy J. Scialla
