Session Description
Pulmonary fellowship trainees are expected to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary for independent medical practice. However, the majority of clinical training during pulmonary fellowship remains inpatient focused. In fact, the ACGME requires that fellows spend only 7% of training in the outpatient setting. This current training paradigm often delays the honing of outpatient management skills. In this study we aimed to investigate the impact of a novel outpatient curriculum on fellows’ ambulatory knowledge and self-perceived competency via a multi-institution observational study.

Session Objectives
1. Review the results of a multi-institution study of a novel case and evidence-based ambulatory curriculum.
2. Discuss barriers to curriculum implementations.
3. Identify future areas of opportunity to further enhance ambulatory fellowship education.
