Division of Pulmonary Medicine | Educational Activities

In addition to their clinical duties and hands-on research experience, fellows participate in several educational conferences each week. The Division sponsors a weekly clinical and research conference series; a weekly fellowship curriculum conference, which covers a two-year curriculum in Pediatric Pulmonology; and a weekly clinical case conference, which alternates with our Morbidity and Mortality conferences. Clinical case conferences are also held weekly at the New England Pediatric Pulmonary Consortium, which has a typical attendance of 15-25 pediatric pulmonologists from the region. All trainees and staff members in the Division are encouraged to attend these conferences. Finally, there are a wide variety of additional conferences held within our division, at BCH and throughout the Longwood Medical Area that are all open to our trainees.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are striving to further understand and address issues related to structural racism and health equity and encourage our speakers to highlight how these relate to their topic of discussion. We have health-equity focused talks as part of Monday Grand Rounds and consider complex cases with a health equity lens during our case conferences.
