The Section of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine (PCCSM) at Yale is committed to the three cornerstones of academic medicine:

  1. Superb patient care
  2. Cutting edge clinical, translational, and basic science research
  3. Outstanding educational training

The integration of the Section’s ambulatory pulmonary specialty centers with our multifaceted research laboratories provides a rich landscape for delivering and developing state of the art treatments, including a wide array of clinical trials.  Our nationally and internationally recognized faculty actively contributes to bringing scientific discoveries from the bench to the bedside, engaging in a broad spectrum of dynamic investigational efforts.  The 19 fellows in our ACGME-accredited program train in one of the largest tertiary care hospitals in the country, with access to a multitude of research opportunities.  The depth and breadth of our clinical programs and laboratories reflect the commitment of our 39 full-time faculty to improving patient care and advancing knowledge in all aspects of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.
