Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine provides critical care in the medical intensive care units and consultative services at the University Hospital, Jackson VA Medical Center and the University Medical Pavilion. The division oversees diagnostic testing and clinical activities. The division strives to be a resource for Mississippi where patients with the most difficult pulmonary problems can be cared for. The division is active in clinical research studies so the latest therapeutic options are available to our patients. The division has a very robust training program in pulmonary and critical care medicine so that we can expand the number of specialty physicians in Mississippi.
