Welcome to the Division of Respiratory and Critical Care Physiology and Medicine
The institution’s diverse patient population affords fellows experience with a wide range of pulmonary disease and critical illness. Clinical problems encountered include the full range of acute and chronic diseases (airways disease, interstitial lung diseases, infections and lung cancers) that are common to the specialty. In addition we care for difficult-to-manage tuberculosis and other conditions represented in the global population of Southern California. In recent years, we have greatly expanded our interventional pulmonary services which include linear and radial bronchoscopic ultrasound, airway stenting and ablations, navigational bronchoscopy, bronchial thermoplasty, and medical thoracoscopy. On the critical care service, fellows and attending physicians lead a team of interns and residents managing all aspects of critical illness while maintaining a priority on teaching. Rotations to our affiliate institutions afford fellows additional experience in highly specialized pulmonary services, a multidisciplinary approach to critical care, and the opportunity to work within a range of health care provider models.
