Setting The Standard of High Quality

The Association of Interventional Pulmonology Program Directors was established to set the standard for high quality, patient centered, evidence based training in the field of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures of the thorax.

Who We Are

Interventional Pulmonology (IP) is an emerging subspecialty of pulmonary medicine. Dedicated IP training requires an additional year of training after traditional pulmonary and critical care fellowship. Training focuses on the diagnosis and management of central airway obstruction, lung cancer, pleural diseases, and specialized procedural training in various airway and pleural procedures. As a result of growth in technology, the field of IP continues to expand to treat a wide range of pulmonary diseases.
