Introduction

The Pulmonary Division of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine provides evaluation and management services for children with chronic respiratory diseases. The faculty and fellows in the division have expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders, and are also active in clinical, translational, and basic science research.

The clinical activities of the division consist of the Inpatient and Consultation Service, Bronchoscopy Service, Outpatient Clinics and Pediatric Pulmonary Function Testing. Separate attending pulmonologists are assigned to cover each of these areas. Fellows may or may not be on the clinical service during your elective. Attending and Fellow schedules for the period of time of your elective are available in the division offices at 5119-B Bioinformatics (966-1055).

For this elective, you already have a list of specific objectives and criteria for evaluation. A more detailed list for each of our services is attached. Your individual goals may vary depending on your current stage of training and future plans. However, during your month on elective, it is suggested that you try to accomplish the tasks listed on the attached pages, at a minimum.

Dr. Elisabeth Dellon (beeper 216-6154; email: epdellon@med.unc.edu) coordinates the resident and medical student electives. You should meet with Dr. Dellon at the start of your elective to define goals for the month, and again at the end of the month to determine whether they were met. Additionally, questions about the rotation which arise during the month can be addressed to Dr. Dellon at any time.
