"Fellow of the College of Chest Physicians" (FCCP) is a title given to a Doctor Who specializes in pulmonology, thoracic surgery, and critical care medicine. FCCP is used as a post-nominal title, such as John Citizen, MD, FCCP. To be eligible for the Fellowship, a physician in the United States of America or Canada must be board certified in both a primary board and an applicable subspecialty board, have at least 18 months experience in the field, and be sponsored by two Fellows of the College.1
