The Section of Respiratory Medicine runs the Respiratory Medicine Subspecialty Education Program. The section has 14 GFT and 9 non-GFT physicians and 1 PhD researchers.

Respiratory Medicine (respirology) is a subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the respiratory system such as advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, interstitial lung diseases, pulmonary arterial hypertension, tuberculosis, and pulmonary fibrosis. They also provide on-going care for lung transplant patients and patients with chronic respiratory failure.

Respiratory medicine physicians and their team provide detailed assessments, treatments, and education for the province of Manitoba, as well as northern communities in Canada and parts of Northwestern Ontario.

Adult respirology clinics are located at Winnipeg’s largest hospitals, The Health Sciences Centre and the St. Boniface Hospital. Our respirologists are involved in the evaluation of patients with various sleep disorders including sleep-disordered breathing work at the Sleep Disorder Centre located at the Misericordia, Health Centre.

Respiratory medicine physicians also provide coverage at the Riverview Health Centre.
