Division of Pulmonary Medicine

Clinical Training

Clinical training consists of practical learning on the pulmonary wards and consultation services where cases are seen and evaluated with a member of the pulmonary faculty. In addition, a pulmonary continuity clinic is maintained throughout the three years. There are also specialty clinics offered during specific rotations.

Fellows learn to perform a wide range of pulmonary and critical care procedures including:

  • fiberoptic bronchoscopy and percutaneous pleural biopsy
  • interpretation of pulmonary function
  • exercise and sleep studies
  • insertion techniques and monitoring of central venous and swan-ganz catheters
  • intubation
  • mechanical ventilation and percutaneous chest tube placement

Fellows also participate in the Fundamentals of Critical Care Support (FCCS) course and train on a human patient simulator: a talking, breathing, automated mannequin. In-services are established for ultrasound-guided procedures, pigtail thoracentesis kits, and mechanical ventilators.

Calendar

Pulmonary Fellowship Conferences occur regularly throughout the year.
