Pulmonary Medicine

A pulmonologist, a doctor who specializes in diseases of the lung, will treat you and help you to manage your medications and oxygen therapy.

Your pulmonologist has undergone years of training and clinical experience in pulmonary medicine. After graduating from medical school, a doctor spends three years training in a residency program before taking examinations to become certified as an internist. He then must further his training through a three or four year fellowship to become a specialist in pulmonary medicine. After taking a national certification examination, he may become certified as a pulmonologist. Pulmonologists must retake this examination every 10 years to maintain their certification.
