Pulmonary Pathology

The rotation is geared toward familiarizing the resident/fellow with the common histopathologic and clinical disease entities in pulmonary pathology. Special emphasis will be given to the management implications of the pathologic diagnosis and the tools and studies at hand to reach this diagnosis. Review of current as well as archival or study set material would be included. Independent reading and review of the current literature in the field is expected. Attendance to the weekly thoracic tumor board and the weekly pulmonary medicine conference is imperative during the month.
