Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine - For professionals

Overview

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine first opened its doors in the 1980s with one faculty member; it has grown to become a faculty of 24 dedicated physicians of pulmonary medicine, a critical care unit, and a center including sleep medicine. Our clinician researchers, eight professors, four associate professors, and 12 assistant professors, are all engaged in scholarly activity including teaching, research, and mentorship of our fellows and residents.  We are proud to have several of our faculty conducting federally funded clinical research projects on asthma, COPD, and basic research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

The extensive scope of diseases and disorders encompassed by the fields of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine has facilitated a broad range of contributions by the faculty of the Northwell Health Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine to our tripartite mission of excellence in patient care, clinical research and education. Our faculty is recognized for its expertise in pulmonary medicine, with specialized centers for pulmonary hypertension and advanced lung disease, cystic fibrosis and asthma. Our critical care physicians are internationally recognized for innovations in intensive care and are pioneers in point-of-care ultrasonography in critical care medicine. The faculty of the Northwell Sleep Disorders Center is recognized for excellence in clinical care, graduate medical education and clinical research in sleep medicine. We are also proud to collaborate with our basic science colleagues at the Center for Heart and Lung Research, of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
