Teaching in the undergraduate and graduate levels of medical education is an important aspect of Division activity. In various settings, all faculty members participate in teaching by directing courses and programs, by leading large and small group sessions in the classroom, and, of course, teaching at the bedside.
Undergraduate Medical Education
Division faculty members are course (J. Mark Madison, MD) and block (Mark Wilson, MD) directors in the two-semester Organ Systems Disease (OSD) course that introduces second year medical students to the integrated disciplines of Pathology, Pathophysiology, and Medical Pharmacology. Faculty members also participate in the teaching of Respiratory Physiology to medical students taking the first year course on Development Structure and Function (DSF). Other faculty members serve as mentors to medical students as well.
All of the physician faculty members participate in teaching medical students in various clinical settings at the bedside. Students can elect to take the Division’s Pulmonary Consult electives (course director Ryan Shipe, MD) at University or Memorial campuses and students on their Medicine Clerkships regularly serve as members of the team caring for patients on the Pulmonary Inpatient service. Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate and learn in our intensive care unit settings (course director Mark Wilson, MD). Inquiries regarding availability of elective rotations can be made through the Pulmonary Division offices at (508) 856-1975.
Graduate Medical Education - Residency
Division faculty members participate as teachers and leaders (Dr. Scott Kopec) in the Department’s Medical Residency Program. Medical Interns and Residents, have the opportunity to work with and learn from faculty members who are attending on our Pulmonary Consult and Inpatient services, our Intensive Care Units, and our Ambulatory Clinic. Not surprisingly, rotations in our ICU’s are an important and major element of medical training during the residency years.
