Education and Quality

As medical education leaders in the medical school and the medical wards, our Division is uniquely positioned to facilitate fellows becoming future thought leaders in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine. Fellows participate in problem based learning during the pulmonary section of the medical school curriculum and teach a rigorous ICU curriculum to the medical residents during their ICU rotations. Opportunities for research in medical education and quality improvement include study design around procedure simulation training, quality projects supported with institutional funding, and before-after studies based around curriculum design. Additional educational opportunities are available including the Master’s in Clinical Epidemiology & Health Services Research which is available to fellows.
