Educating today’s aspiring physicians is something to which Lahey’s pulmonologists and intensivists remain highly dedicated. The Department of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine runs a 3-year fellowship program, affiliated with the Tufts Medical School, through which fellows are trained in the most pioneering treatments in areas such as critical care and interventional pulmonology. In addition, two, 1-year specialty fellowship programs are offered and provide advanced training in interventional pulmonology and sleep disorders.
Lahey pulmonologists are heavily involved in efforts to advance the professional knowledge of rigid bronchoscopy, a procedure during which a stainless steel viewing tube is used to examine the tissues of the airways and remove any tumors. Not only do they train their fellows in the technique, but they also teach yearly courses to doctors from throughout the United States and around the world. These classes provide information on the variety of therapies that can be performed through the rigid bronchoscope.
