Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

Over 30 full-time University-based faculty and 28 physician faculty at three affiliated teaching hospitals comprise the PACCS division. The faculty provide broad expertise, diverse clinical practice and fellowship training at four hospitals.

PACCS proudly features nationally-recognized programs in Interstitial Lung Disease and Lung Transplantation, Critical Care Medicine, Cystic Fibrosis, Interventional Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine.

With generous support from the NIH, VA Research Service, American Lung Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and several other private foundations, we are committed to providing our students the best graduate and postgraduate education in lung science available today.

The division is expanding with major new investments from the Medical School and Academic Health Center. Training is offered in Lung Cell and Molecular Biology, Bioengineering and Clinical Trials, with joint Masters and PhD programs.

We strive to find cures for Acute Lung Injury, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Pulmonary Hypertension and other deadly lung diseases as we continuously improve current preventive strategies and treatment modalities.
