Pulmonary Consultation Services

Jackson Memorial Hospital, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and University of Miami Hospital and Clinics:

The pulmonary consultation service will develop the fellows’ skills to provide effective and proficient consultations based on scientific principles for patients with respiratory disorders to the requesting health care practitioner. Fellows will be exposed to a large spectrum of disease entities from commonly encountered to rare and unusual problems. This exposure will ultimately enable the fellows to effectively work as consultants in a variety of environments, such as private practice setting, as well as in a large hospital based practice, or in an academic center. The fellows will be exposed and learn the technical aspects of pulmonary procedures such as bronchoscopies, transbronchial biopsies and other procedures. They are expected to appreciate a consultation as both a patient oriented diagnostic and management tool as well as an educational experience for themselves and the requesting health care practitioner.
