Non-physicians who do active work in chest medicine—including those with a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), Doctor of Science (D.Sc.), or a doctorally-prepared nurse—are also eligible for the fellowship. Physicians outside of the United States and Canada are also eligible for the Fellowship.
