Our Division is strongly dedicated to the mission of education and training. We have outstanding fellowship programs that train young physicians to be leaders in the fields of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine. In addition to learning the clinical skills of these fields from nationally renowned experts, our fellows are trained in biomedical research and in educating future generations of medical professionals. Because of the broad research interests of our faculty, Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep fellows can choose to develop research skills in molecular or cell biology, physiology, or clinical research. We have a combined training program with the University of Washington Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program, in which selected fellows are trained in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and Occupational Medicine with an emphasis on occupational lung diseases. Our Division is also dedicated to training medical students, medical residents, and anesthesiology residents as well as paramedics, nurses, respiratory therapists, and other medical professionals. Our faculty members participate in Continuing Medical Education programs for other physicians in our state and around the country and the world.
