Seton Hall University conducts its Pulmonary Fellowship Training at the following institutions: St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ and St. Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, NJ.   Pulmonary Program Faculty consists of full time, part time and select voluntary attending staff of the Pulmonary Divisions at the two institutions. Pulmonary Division of each institution is under the full time directorship of a Division Chief. Program Director of the Pulmonary Fellowship Training is located at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. Pulmonary Division Chief of the St. Michael’s Medical Center serves as Associate Program Director.

Pulmonary curriculum is covered during the course of two years of training through bed-side teaching, didactic instruction and lectures technical instruction in performing pulmonary procedures and pulmonary functional assessment, Pulmonary Conferences, Pulmonary Grand Rounds, Research Conferences, Journal Club Meetings, Interdisciplinary Conferences in Pathology, Radiology, Oncology, Infectious Diseases as well as conducting research. 

The two year subspecialty program in Pulmonary Disease is organized to provide training and experience at a sufficient level for the trainee to acquire the competency of a specialist in this field.  Clinical experience includes opportunities to observe and management patients with a wide variety of pulmonary disease as an inpatient and outpatient basis. The trainee is given opportunities to assume continuing responsibility for both acute and chronically ill patients in order to learn the natural history of pulmonary disease as well as effectiveness of therapeutic programs. 

The program includes emphasis on pulmonary physiology and its correlation with clinical disorders.  The trainees learn utilization of laboratory tests and gain familiarity with radionuclide procedures and radiological studies for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary disease.
