Division of Respiratory Medicine
The UBC Respiratory Division is primarily located at the major teaching hospitals affiliated with the UBC Faculty of Medicine. The major activities are focused at Vancouver General Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital and UBC Hospital. In addition, reflecting the distributed medical school there are a significant number of community respirologists affiliated formally as either full or associate members of the Division.
