Fellowship in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital

The three-year pulmonary and critical care medicine program at Lenox Hill Hospital offers fellows the opportunity to acquire the expertise and competency of a specialist in pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine. We offer a closely mentored experience in the diagnosis and management of patients with respiratory disease and critical illnesses in both inpatient and ambulatory settings.

Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in scholarly activities involving teaching, basic and clinical research. 

The program rotations include patient consultations, endoscopy, one month of respiratory therapy, two months in the medical ICU, two months in the Pulmonary Function Laboratory and a one-month rotation in lung transplantation at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Fellows also experience pediatric care for patients with lung disease throughout the fellowship.

The pulmonary service offers a vast experience in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis and there is an ongoing rotation with the oncologic service.

Weekly teaching conferences include: pulmonary grand rounds, pulmonary physiology, pediatric pulmonary medicine, pulmonary pathology, which includes a one-hour session on microscopic pathology, and an additional hour of gross pathology of the inflated postmortem lung.

Each fellow participates in ongoing clinical research studies during the program. Clinical research is performed in three laboratories at Lenox Hill Hospital. The Hospital has a full-time director of research, and a course in research techniques and statistics is afforded for the pulmonary fellows.

Our clinicians, educators and researchers are dedicated to delivering the highest quality care, while continually pushing the boundaries of knowledge.
