Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine


The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is staffed by 22 faculty and 27 APPs, and has fellowship programs in Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, and Interventional Pulmonary Medicine with a total of 18 fellows.

The Division provides inpatient care for all 44 medical ICU beds at UK Chandler and provides pulmonary consultative services for inpatients admitted to UK Chandler and UK Good Samaritan.

Our faculty and staff are committed to providing excellence in patient care through our direct contact with patients, through our teaching programs, and with basic and clinical research. The Division also provides clinical care in the ambulatory setting for all pulmonary diagnoses, including specialty clinics for pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, asthma, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancer, and sleep medicine. The research activities of the Division are focused on respiratory muscle weakness, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and ICU outcomes.

The central reason we continue educational programs involving medical students, residents, fellows, and other trainees is to improve the lives of our patients.   Our focus in both our educational and research activities is to continually improve and discover ways to best deliver care that is important to our patients and their families.
