Pulmonology Course / How I got into Pulmonology: "I am trained in Pulmonary Medicine for which I received an MD followed by a DNB by the National Board of Examinations, followed by a fellowship in Lung Cancer and then a senior post at the National Institute of Tuberculosis and Respiratory Diseases, New Delhi. I have several research papers and also teaching post graduate students. My experience helps me manage respiratory diseases such as lung infections, smoking related lung disease, interstitial lung diseases, pleural diseases (like water/fluid around the lung), obstructive lung diseases (Asthma, bronchitis and COPD), lung cancers and sleep disordered breathing like sleep apnea."
