Research and Innovation

We believe that scholarly pursuit is important in the training of fellows, and can be accomplished such that it is meaningful and rewarding for the fellows. Protected time and educational conferences will be provided to help maximize this experience. Fellows may devise their own research project with the clinical faculty, work on a clinical or QI project, or take advantage of the unique opportunities offered at Hackensack University Medical Center.

Our Campus

Hackensack University Medical Center is a 775 bed state-of-the-art hospital that serves as a tertiary referral center for a 18 hospital network in Bergen County, close to New York City. It is nationally ranked with many awards for excellence. In addition, the hospital is a major teaching site of the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine, a new medical school with an innovative curriculum.

Currently our critical care team manages a 20 bed medical ICU and a 26 bed step down unit as well as an active critical care consult service. The team runs all the inpatient medical codes, responds to all needs for emergent intubations, and provides 24/7 critical care attending in-house coverage. All the ICUs and stepdowns are equipped with an advanced airway cart allowing escalation to various intubation tools, and a portable advanced airway backpack is taken to respond to off-site locations. A new 9-floor tower, with modern critical care units, is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2022. This will initially house 50 ICU beds with plans to expand to a full 75 ICU beds.

Our fellows’ Pulmonary continuity clinic is based in our modern medical arts pavilion adjacent to the hospital. Just a few floors down sits our advanced Pulmonary Rehabilitation center. Located within the hospital is our well equipped bronchoscopy suite, PFT Lab, and exercise study lab. Interventional bronchoscopic procedures are performed by our faculty in the main operating room. We perform a broad range of interventional pulmonary procedures and work closely with Thoracic surgery in the management of many of these complex cases.
