Didactic Training

Didactic training is an integral part of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship, though fellows are also exposed to other innovative ways of delivering education such as the use of social medical platform, video blogs and flipped classroom models.

During training, you participate in:

  • A weekly combined case conference featuring pulmonary, thoracic surgery, critical care, sleep, radiology and pathology cases
  • A weekly conference presented by pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows or the staff consultants, often on materials published in peer-reviewed journals or presented at regional and national meetings, recent advances or new technologies, or research projects with clinical translational impact
  • Core lectures in pulmonary and critical care medicine
  • Monthly comprehensive conferences in sleep medicine
  • Weekly research conferences to review and discuss recently conducted or ongoing research projects
  • A biennial course in advanced pulmonary physiology
  • Frequent journal clubs to discuss and critically evaluate recent scientific publications on basic mechanisms of lung disease and clinical aspects of pulmonary and critical care medicine
  • Monthly interventional pulmonary case conference
  • Weekly sleep case conference
  • Quarterly multidisciplinary mycobacterial disease conference
  • Morbidity and mortality conference
  • Quality improvement and patient safety projects
