Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine comprises of 29 full-time faculty members who have an extensive range of clinical and research interests. This allows us to offer ample opportunities for one-on-one faculty-fellow mentorship while also delivering breadth and depth of expertise. Our aim is to provide exceptional care to our patients as well as outstanding clinical and research training to our fellows. 

Our division treats patients with a range of pulmonary and respiratory ailments, including obstructive airway diseases such as asthma and COPD, restrictive lung diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and occupationally acquired lung disease, sleep-related breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, and acute lung injury in the critical care setting. Our interventional colleagues work closely with Oncology to diagnose and treat lung cancer patients. The Transplant Pulmonary group evaluates patients who are being considered for lung transplant and cares for post-operative transplant patients.

UVA Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellowship Program

The Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship at UVA is a three-year program that provides a strong background in clinical pulmonary medicine and the management of critically ill patients. At least 12 months of research experience is provided in the clinical research track. A second 18-month research experience is offered for fellows interested in the academic research track. Research may be in either clinical or basic science.
