Program Overview

Program Description:

In our specialized center we provide prevention, diagnosis, treatment, assessment and research on disorders of the respiratory tract including tuberculosis. The members of our team also perform lung transplants. In addition, we focus on reducing the probability of transition from acute to chronic stage, along with rationalization of care for patients with chronic diseases of the respiratory tract.

In 2014, 1,714 patients were hospitalized. We treated 1,598 outpatients, performed 1,485 bronchoscopies and provided 1,126 patients with chemotherapy and many more.

Only with us you know your department and the mentoring team even before you apply. What does one of our mentors – pulmonologist Dmitri - say about your placement schedule and patient cases to observe?

„You will see the everyday medical tasks in the Pulmonology center - physical examinations of patients and assessing the results of laboratory tests and imaging tests. I perform bronchoscopies, as well as diagnostic and therapeutic procedures like thoracentesis, SONO of the chest, drain extraction, blood administration, and so on. Once a week, there are important patient rounds with the head of our specialized center. We analyze medical records of patients and plan the following steps for treatment - the diagnostic procedure. Once a week you can also see the interdisciplinary seminar. There is always a chest surgeon, an oncologist, and other specialists. We discuss bronchoscopies, chest punctures or work in the acute outpatient pulmonology center. I take care of newly admitted patients, discharging patients, and the transport of patients to other hospitals or departments.“

For whom is the placement in Pulmonology Specialized Center suitable?

  • You will appreciate pulmonology mainly as a future doctor as the job tasks are connected to the medical specialty.
