We have two training sites that provide a rigorous, diverse, and rewarding clinical training experience for our trainees.
Ronald Reagan Medical Center (RRMC):
A 520-bed hospital with five specialized 24-bed ICUs. It is a quarternary care hospital that is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the US News and World Report rankings. At RRMC, our trainees benefit from specialized training in pulmonary and critical care. Trainees routinely see cases that some pulmonary physicians only see once in a lifetime. Some of the subspecialized pulmonary care provided at RRMC includes: interstitial and rare lung diseases, lung transplant, pulmonary hypertension, ECMO, and interventional pulmonary.
Santa Monica-UCLA Hospital (SM-UCLA):
A 281-bed hospital with an 18-bed ICU which serves as our community hospital. It is staffed by a skilled, tight knit group of full-time UCLA faculty clinician educators. It is the home base for our interventional pulmonary group, offering advanced bronchoscopic, pleural, and airway procedures. At this site, our trainees get to run their own ICU as there are no residents or mid-level providers. Our trainees enjoy both the medicine and the autonomy at Santa Monica and have the opportunity to participate in a truly community intensivist experience there.
