Stanford eBay Clinical Fellowship in Pulmonary Vascular Disease


Established in 2001, the eBay Clinical Fellowship in Pulmonary Vascular Disease is a post-doctoral fellowship devoted exclusively to clinical training in pulmonary vascular disease. It offers in-depth experience and access to the exceptional clinical, research and educational activities of the Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and Stanford University. Applicants must be committed to managing a fast-paced, busy clinical service and to dedicating additional time to scholarly activities. 

The fellowship is open to physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in either pediatric or adult cardiology or pulmonary and intensive care medicine and who wish to acquire additional expertise in the area of pulmonary vascular disease. Equivalent experience in related areas may also be given consideration. It is designed to prepare trainees for academic careers in a subspecialty with a focus on pulmonary vascular disease. Direct supervision and teaching is provided by faculty from the Divisions of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Cardiology and Pediatric Cardiology. 

The duration of the fellowship is one to two years. Clinical fellows participate in a year-long program and are fully funded. Fellows pursuing a combined clinical and research program are expected to complete two years of training. Full funding is provided during the first year and the faculty will assist fellows in obtaining grant funding for salary and project support during the second year of training. 


1. Completion of an ACGME-accredited fellowship in either pediatric or adult cardiology or pulmonary and critical care medicine. Equivalent experience in related areas may also be considered. 

2. California Medical License prior to start date. Any physicians who work in the state of California are required to have a California Medical License. If you should match with a fellowship program in the state of California, then you will need to apply for a California medical license. It takes 9 months to receive a California license after the submission of a California license application. Please visit for more information about the Medical Board of California. 

3. International Medical Graduate applicants need to provide a copy of their Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certificate. Visit the ECFMG website for more information. International Medical Graduate applicants must have completed 2 years of ACGME training (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education training) in a U.S. residency program prior to beginning the fellowship. This is a requirement because two years of ACGME residency training in the United States or Canada is required for a California Medical License.

4. Our PH Fellows are appointed through our Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA). OPA requires that our medical postdoctoral scholars have completed their medical degree within the last 6 years.
