Pediatric pulmonology fellowship

Joseph M Collaco, Steven H Abman
Thirty years after the first board certification examination for pediatric pulmonology was administered there remain substantial challenges in attracting trainees and sustaining and retaining clinician-scientists in the field. In fact, significant workforce shortages are predicted to exist with current fellowship graduation rates and the aging of the existing workforce. However, the rapid diagnostic and therapeutic advances occurring in the field should serve as draw for trainees. In addition, pediatric pulmonologists provide unique expertise for the diversity and severity of respiratory conditions that is not duplicated by generalists, allergists, intensivists, or neonatologists...

OBJECTIVE: There is currently no evidence-based method for defining competency in pediatric flexible bronchoscopy (FB). Based on expert opinion, guidelines using numbers of procedures have been published in defining competency for pediatric FB. The purpose of this study was to formally survey the opinion of USA pediatric pulmonology training directors about the assessment of competency and training experiences in pediatric FB in their programs. METHODS: An Internet-based Survey Monkey™ of the Pediatric Pulmonary Training Directors Association (PEPTDA) was administered 10/12/10 through 11/1/10 with a supplemental survey 6/1/11-6/30/11...

This study was designed to determine the profile of our pediatric pulmonology unit in Turkey, a developing country, by investigating the patients admitted to our unit for the first time. Our objectives were: to determine the profile of patients admitted for the first time, to compare their initial diagnoses before referral to our hospital with the diagnoses determined in our unit, to determine the definitive diagnoses for patients requiring advanced intervention with invasive diagnostic methods, and to follow the treatments, operations and invasive-noninvasive mechanical ventilation practices...

BACKGROUND: Relatively little is known about interest in pediatric pulmonology among pediatric residents. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to determine at this institution: 1) the level of pediatric resident interest in pursuing a pulmonary fellowship, 2) potential factors involved in development of such interest, 3) whether the presence of a pulmonary fellowship program affects such interest. METHODS: A questionnaire was distributed to all 52 pediatric residents at this institution in 1992 and to all 59 pediatric residents and 14 combined internal medicine/pediatrics residents in 2002, following development of a pulmonary fellowship program...
