Pulmonary Fellowship


The Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship at the University of Tennessee was approved in 2008 and offers excellent training opportunities at the teaching hospitals of the University of Tennessee, including Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and TC Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga. Research opportunities exist for pulmonary research training in physiology, pulmonary infections, asthma, cystic fibrosis, and pulmonary complications of childhood cancer therapy.

Fellows learn the basics of applied pulmonary physiology, specialized procedures including bronchoscopy, exercise testing, and infant pulmonary function testing, and how to establish a successful pulmonary referral practice. The three year program aims to provide a fellowship experience that prepares future leaders in the field of pediatric pulmonary medicine and provides a foundation in scholarship and continuous care improvement principles.
