Course Description

Pulmonary medicine is a rapidly growing field both in India and globally. Due to factors like increasing urbanization, air pollution, and smoking, respiratory disorders are becoming more common. There are millions of people suffering from lung diseases who urgently need medication.

The Advanced Certificate Course in Pulmonology offers an extensive curriculum that covers a wide range of topics in the field of respiratory medicine. Participants gain in-depth knowledge of tuberculosis, including its etiopathogenesis, diagnostic methods, and differential diagnosis. The program also focuses on the management of pulmonary tuberculosis, exploring key strategies such as NTEP, DOTS, and DOTS-Plus. Participants learn about the complications associated with tuberculosis, as well as its manifestation in specific populations such as children and the elderly. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is also discussed, providing insights into its diagnosis and management.

The Advanced Certificate in Pulmonology program addresses the management of drug-resistant tuberculosis, including multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) cases. Participants gain expertise in handling these challenging cases and understanding the appropriate treatment approaches. Community-acquired pneumonia, hospital-associated pneumonia, and ventilator-associated pneumonia are extensively covered, including their diagnosis, management, and prevention strategies. 

The Advanced Certificate in Pulmonology program further covers upper airway obstruction syndromes, occupational lung diseases, pneumoconiosis, pleural effusion, inhalation lung injury, and traumatic thoracic injury. Various pulmonary conditions are discussed, including bronchiectasis, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-related opportunistic infections, sarcoidosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, eosinophilic pneumonia, tropical eosinophilia, and pulmonary vasculitides. Occupational and environmental pulmonary diseases, as well as aspiration and inhalational lung diseases, are also examined. 

Through this comprehensive curriculum, participants acquire advanced knowledge and skills in pulmonology, enabling them to diagnose, manage, and treat a wide range of respiratory conditions. At Medvarsity, we aim to help healthcare professionals accelerate their careers and enhance their ability to serve their communities.

Course Validity: 7 months. There will be an extra charge for the extension of the course validity.
