Training Overview

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Division has 13 full-time faculty with a variety of clinical interests. The Pulmonary Division is small enough to provide extensive direct interaction between faculty and fellows, while providing training in all aspects of pulmonary and critical care medicine. The Division provides inpatient care and consultation and staffs the Medical Intensive Care Unit, where the fellow is the chief medical officer. In addition, fellows rotate through nonmedical Intensive Care Units including the Coronary Care Unit, Neurological Intensive Care Unit, and Surgical-Trauma Intensive Care Unit.

Outpatient services for more than 4,000 patients each year are provided in the Pulmonary Clinic with an adjacent Pulmonary Function Laboratory. Procedures are performed in the intensive care units and the multidisciplinary endoscopy unit. Specialized clinical programs provide expertise in interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension, sleep disorders, lung transplantation, and adult cystic fibrosis. The division works closely with thoracic surgery, otolaryngology, and pathology in interdisciplinary projects.
