Welcome from the Program Director

Fellowship Director: Heath Latham, M.D.

Thank you for your interest in our program, and congratulations on nearing the completion of your Internal Medicine Residency. There are many opportunities in the specialty of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and I believe it is a great time to choose the University of Kansas as your Fellowship training site. Our Medical Center experienced tremendous growth over the last decade, and this growth enhanced many aspects of the educational experience of our Fellows including increased exposure to complex pulmonary subspecialty populations, increased procedural numbers and technology, and exposure to a nationally recognized intensive care unit.

We are a clinically focused training program. Therefore, our rotation structure is twenty-four months of clinical rotations and twelve months of research over the three year fellowship. Our graduates are scattered throughout the country in Academics, Private Practice, and Industry. Our goal is to provide you with advanced training, via patient care, didactic exercises, simulation, and other means to develop competency as a specialist in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the University of Kansas Hospital along with its partner physicians to deliver world-class care to patients with complex conditions, even the most rare. We will work to fulfill this mission each day-continually raising the bar on quality of care and discovering options where once there were none. Our vision is to lead the nation in caring, healing, teaching, and discovering.
