Educational Programs

The Department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery offers fellowships in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine at Temple University Hospital. The department is made up of a diverse group of physician educators and physician scientists who train these fellows in every aspect of the clinical and basic sciences of the respiratory system.

Temple University Hospital is the sole teaching site for these fellowships and includes state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient facilities, including the Temple Lung Center, a nationally-respected diagnostic and treatment center for advanced lung diseases.

All fellows will have access to a variety of research programs that focus on the physiology, pathophysiology, cell biology and molecular biology of the respiratory system in both health and disease. The integration of research with patient care assures proper training in pulmonary and critical care medicine, thus providing the opportunity for a trainee to enter either academic medicine or private practice.

At the end of the fellowship, trainees will be board-eligible for certification in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.
