Along with cardiology and gastroenterology, pulmonology is the third pillar of internal medicine. Pulmonology (Latin: pulmo = lung) covers the prevention, detection, and treatment of all diseases of the bronchia, lungs, mediastinum, pleura, thoracic wall, respiratory muscles, and diaphragm. Those who complete their training as a specialist physician for internal medicine and pulmonology select a field that covers a broad spectrum of interests and skills, one that is certainly among the most diverse fields in all of medicine. And one of the most promising: diseases of the respiratory system are among the most common reasons people consult a doctor today, and the number of people with asthma, COPD, or lung cancer continues to rise. With COVID-19, the number of cases in need of respiratory care has grown even further, with pulmonologists now equally in demand in hospitals, clinical practice, and research.
