About the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) provides personalized care for patients with respiratory conditions, from common diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), to complex inherited diseases, and difficult-to-treat infections and respiratory failure. Patients benefit from our multidisciplinary approach to care which unites over 50 highly trained pulmonologists with thoracic surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and allergists/immunologists and more. Together, these specialists offer precise diagnostic capabilities and recommend targeted treatments.
Under the leadership of Bruce Levy, MD, Chief, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, our board-certified pulmonologists have developed 36 unique pulmonary programs, focused on specific diseases and select patient populations. Our physicians serve as pulmonary specialists for Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center and are an integral part of The Lung Center, a collaborative team of medical and surgical experts.
Pulmonologists at BWH are shaping the future of pulmonary medicine every day: pioneering groundbreaking research, developing new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating pulmonary disease and educating the next generation of physicians through our acclaimed Harvard-BWH pulmonary and critical care fellowship program.
