Division Overview

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is devoted to excellence in patient care, postgraduate subspecialty training, and clinical and basic science research. 

Led by Lance Terada, M.D., the Division offers clinical services at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, Zale Lipshy University Hospital, Parkland Memorial Hospital, the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Professional Office Building 2

Faculty provide subspecialty care through clinical programs in cystic fibrosis, interventional pulmonology, interstitial and occupational lung diseases, neuromuscular breathing disorders, pulmonary hypertension, sleep and circadian disorders, and lung transplant. 

The Division’s rigorous Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowship Program is designed to train physicians in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques relevant to diseases of the thorax. We offer both clinical and research tracks in this fellowship, to foster the development of both community and academic pulmonologists. 

Faculty perform leading-edge research focused on respiratory biology and disease, with important collaborative links to both clinical and basic science departments at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
