Other Conferences

There are many conferences at the university on a variety of both clinical and research topics. The Department of Medicine holds many weekly conferences that fellows may attend. These include Medical Grand Rounds, Morbidity and Mortality Conference, Ethics Conference, and Autopsy Conference. Other conferences that fellows attend include a day long bronchoscopy workshop and a large-animal lab for practice putting in chest tubes, both held in July off campus, and a lung pathology course.

The Pulmonary and Critical Care fellows are strongly encouraged to join professional societies and attend national meetings. Every fellow is encouraged to attend at least one national conference annually. Fellows are given $750 yearly to help defray educational expenses.

There are many outstanding regular research conferences that fellows are also encouraged to attend if they are interested in a particular area.
