Department and Faculty
The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the thorax. It is one of the largest and most respected divisions of its kind in the United States. Members of the division perform approximately 3,500 to 4,000 procedures each year in state-of-the-art facilities using the latest equipment.
The division is organized around interest groups oriented toward disease processes, organ systems, procedures or patient groups. Clinical expertise is integrated with the newest forms of established and experimental diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Patient care is provided by teams of physicians and other health care staff with broad expertise in all forms of thoracic disease.
Because of Mayo Clinic's recognition that high-quality care depends upon scientific discovery, major research programs at the basic, applied and translational levels exist to generate new knowledge that ultimately improves patient care, including interventional and advanced diagnostic procedural research efforts.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. Current faculty for this fellowship include past presidents of the American College of Chest Physicians and American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology.
