Didactics

Education is our top priority at the University of Tennessee. As such, we offer multiple educational experiences, including:

  • An 18 month rotating, structured curriculum, covering all of the major topics in Pulmonary Critical Care at Tuesday and Thursday noon conferences.
  • A written curriculum for each rotation.
  • Exam review course - an annual review of pulmonary critical care in preparation for in-service exams.
  • Journal Club- a twice-monthly critical review of recent medical literature given by fellows.
  • Fellow School – Basic topics in pulmonary and critical care presented in July and August. Designed to build a base of knowledge to carry fellows forward in the program.
  • M&M – meets monthly to discuss in-depth diagnosis and management of fatal pulmonary disorders.
  • PFT’s – Pulmonary Function Test case studies monthly review
  • Chest Conference – clinical case studies of lung disease is the one of the longest running conferences in the state of Tennessee.
