3-way timer switches?

I am installing an inline bath fan to vent two seperate baths. The fan itself in in the attic, with an intake grill in each bathroom that feeds into a Y, then through the fan and out the roof at one point.

I'd like the switches for this fan to be timer switches and 3-way switches. I want the abilty turn the fan on or of from each bath, and when turned on for the fan to run just a certain amount of time. Does such a switch exist?

Do you really want 3-way switches? It seems to me that you'd just want two single-pole switches in parallel. That way, either bathroom can turn it on, but one bathroom cannot turn it off if the other bathroom turned it on. I'd just get two of those "turn past" mechanical switches and wire them in parallel.

But if you really want 3-way switches, then I don't know the answer to your question.

I have never seen switches that do what you want. I agree with John, take two single pole timers and wire them in parallel.
