Department and Faculty
Experts in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Mayo Clinic provide comprehensive consultative, diagnostic and therapeutic services for patients with illnesses that affect the lungs and breathing. Physicians provide care for a range of common and rare respiratory conditions including: lung cancer diagnosis and treatment; chronic obstructive lung diseases including asthma; interstitial lung diseases; pulmonary vascular disease including pulmonary hypertension; sleep disorders; acute and chronic respiratory failure; and various lung infections. The latest technology is used to provide state-of-the-art care in both the outpatient and hospital settings, including the intensive care units.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's 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 field. You will have direct access to the Pulmonary and Critical Care faculty at Mayo Clinic in Rochester throughout your training.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
