7thAnnual Board Review and Update in Pulmonary
and Critical Care Medicine 2022

Course Overview

Our Seventh Annual Board Review and Update in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine course will provide a review of key topics in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine as well as an update on recent noteworthy clinical advances, with an emphasis on knowledge and skills useful in medical practice. The course is designed to meet the educational needs of pulmonologists, intensivists, pulmonary and critical care fellows, residents in training, and allied health professionals (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) specializing in these areas. The 3-day course is divided equally between pulmonary and critical care medicine, with topics that include airway diseases, pulmonary vascular diseases, interstitial lung diseases, lung cancer, respiratory failure, shock, and multiple selected topics in ICU management. The program includes embedded Board Review questions and dedicated Board Review sessions, as well as multiple complementary pre-recorded lectures in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine available for download, including specific COVID-19 presentations.
