The Department of Pulmonary Medicine at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh is unique in many ways. It was the only center in India for the postdoctoral course (DM) in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine for almost two decades (since its inception in 1989). This was one of the earliest full-fledged and independent departments of Pulmonary Medicine in India. Besides Respiratory Intensive Care Unit (RICU), it has got a well-equipped Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) Laboratory, Bronchoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology Unit, Lung Cancer Clinic, Sleep Lab as well as a vast array of other facilities that are available for patient care and research.
