Didactic Training

In addition to hands on learning centered on our broad patient base, we offer structured didactic courses that cover pulmonary physiology, pathophysiology, and cell and molecular biology relevant to the lung. The materials from these courses provide excellent board preparation. All fellows take a month long introductory course on clinical research and study design offered through the medical school during the first year of fellowship. Monthly journal clubs foster evidence based practice and critical appraisal of the literature. Weekly case based conferences allow us to learn from each other about interesting and challenging patients, and weekly research seminars engage fellow and faculty creativity, curiosity, and forward thinking as well as helping us the ride the crest of current innovation and the latest research being conducted in pulmonology and related fields. Fellows and faculty additionally participate in regularly scheduled institutional, regional and national case conferences, symposia, and other training opportunities including but not limited to those listed below:
