The fellows of the Pediatric Pulmonary Division are an integral part in the care of infants and children with pulmonary disorders at Winthrop-University Hospital. They are involved in the diagnosis and management of children with a vast array of respiratory diseases in the intensive care units, the general pediatrics units, and in our outpatient offices. The fellows actively participate in the education of the pediatric residents and medical students in both structured didactic sessions as well as informal patient discussions. The Pediatric Pulmonary fellows work closely with the gastroenterologists, neonatologists, allergy/immunologists, surgeons as well as the general pediatricians in a multidisciplinary setting.
The fellowship is a three-year program that in the first year is heavily weighted towards developing clinical acumen and in the second two years is devoted towards pursuing the fellow's research interests. There are twice weekly conferences within the division and the fellows are invited to participate in the adult pulmonologists conferences. The close interaction with the house staff, other pediatric fellows and at research conferences allows ample opportunity to perform and collaborate on sophisticated and significant basic science and clinical research. An introduction to research course is offered to help fellows develop their ability to ask, answer, and analyze research questions. Our present group of fellows have recently presented their research findings at international conferences.
