About Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine 

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the lives of patients with critical illness. We treat disorders of the chest, lungs and airways, and disorders of sleep. We strive for extraordinary and personalized patient care, world-class education, and innovative research.

Clinical Care

Our clinical programs and services include inpatient (in-hospital) and ambulatory (clinic-based) care. Our physicians and other team members always aim to provide high quality and compassionate care.  

Medical Education

Our educational programs include world-class fellowships for physicians seeking advanced training in pulmonary, critical care or sleep medicine. As a major teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School, we are the home of an exceptional Internal Medicine Residency Program. All of the major Harvard Medical School courses related to respiratory physiology and pathophysiology are taught and directed by our members. We also offer CME programs for physicians and other healthcare providers. 

Biomedical Research

Research is a vital part of the Division. Our members have funding from the National Institutes of Health to study basic mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and the clinical expression of those diseases. Learn more about the pulmonary, critical care and sleep research
