Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine

The UAB fellowship in Interventional Pulmonology provides a rich and supportive educational environment where life-long learning skills are acquired and intellectual curiosity is treasured. Our program's primary mission is to assist you in achieving your professional goals while acquiring the skills, attitudes and knowledge to function as an Interventional Pulmonology physician in the setting of your choice.

Besides the wide range of interventional pulmonology procedures, IP fellows will have the opportunity to train with our thoracic and ENT surgeons.  Our IP team works in close collaboration with our medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, ENT surgeons, pathologists and radiologists which allows for well-rounded training for our IP fellows.

Of all the ingredients that have allowed our program to be so successful, the most important is the high quality of the individuals we have been fortunate to have as faculty, fellows and staff. We are very happy that you have taken the time to study our program and hope you find the information available to be valuable. For more information about our IP program click here.
