The objectives of the rotation are to learn interpretation of pulmonary function testing, interpret chest X-rays and CT scans, and to be able to appropriately address and understand the evaluation and management of dyspnea airway diseases, pleural effusions, thromboembolic disease and interstitial diseases.
