Pediatric Respiratory Medicine

The Division of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine at UT Southwestern, one of the newest divisions in the Department of Pediatrics, is committed to improving the health of infants, children, and young adults by providing quality clinical services, furthering the understanding of respiratory illnesses through original research, and participating in the education of physicians at all levels.

Under the interim direction of Philip Shaul, M.D., Professor and Vice Chair of Research, the Division’s eight physicians and a number of associated health care professionals work together to form a truly multidisciplinary program.

Excellence in Patient Care

The Division of Pediatric Respiratory Medicine provides care to infants and children with a wide spectrum of respiratory illnesses, including disorders of respiratory control, the chest wall, and respiratory muscles, airway and lung parenchyma, and cystic fibrosis at Children’s Medical Center’s two campuses. Learn more about the excellence of our patient care.

Leadership in Research

Varied research interests include how the nervous system influences the structure and function of the airways, acute lung injury, mechanical ventilation, near-fatal asthma, pulmonary outcomes in neuromuscular disease, respiratory consequences of early-onset scoliosis, and molecular mechanisms that regulate lung development. Learn more about our state-of-the-art research.

Education of Future Leaders

Our faculty is committed to the education and training of medical students, residents, and fellows. Our Pediatric Pulmonology Fellowship Program prepares pediatricians to be experts in pulmonary medicine through a combination of educational activities, competencies, and assessment methods.
