Lung Transplantation/Advanced Lung Disease Service

The goals of this rotation are:

·       To provide a comprehensive clinical experience in the management of pre- and post-lung transplant patients as well as patients undergoing ECMO.

·       To provide the fellows with the opportunity of working on a non-medical ICU environment, in conjunction with nurse practitioners.

·       To increase knowledge on the guidelines for referral and the appropriate timing for lung transplantation.

·       To increase knowledge on the chronic management of immune suppression in the outpatient setting.

·       To enhance skills on bronchoscopy and associated techniques/procedures in the lung transplant setting

Fellows will be exposed to all aspects of lung transplantation medicine and management of patients with advanced lung disease on ECMO. They attend pre-transplant and post transplant clinics as well as rounds in the many intensive care units that handle this patient population.
