Research in Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Medicine
Research is considered an integral part of the Fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. We offer a broad spectrum of research opportunities within the disciplines of Pulmonary, Critical Care Medicine, and Interventional Pulmonology. We currently have projects including novel therapies for COPD, markers for sepsis and sepsis management and endobronchial valve placement for minimally invasive lung volume reduction. With the advice and supervision of a faculty research mentor, each fellow is expected to complete a research project and submit a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal.
Additional training opportunities in Sleep Medicine are also available to Pulmonary/CCM fellows. Sleep Medicine certification has transferred to the American Board of Internal Medicine, and an additional 12 months of training is required to sit for the American Board of Sleep Medicine's certifying examination. Our Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division has an ACGME-accredited program in Sleep Medicine, and invites Pulmonary/CCM fellows to apply for Henry Ford Sleep Medicine fellowship training.
Interventional Pulmonary fellowship
This 12-month program is led by Dr. Michael Simoff. Candidates for this program must have completed or be enrolled in an ACGME-accredited Pulmonary fellowship.
