The Class of 2018 Pulmonary Training Fund endowment was established by Dr. Bobby Tullos with a generous gift of $30,000. It is for the Department of Medicine’s Pulmonary and Critical Care Division, for the purpose of training pulmonary fellows in the area of advanced airway management, ultrasound, bronchoscopy procedures, and other specialized pulmonary medical care. The fund will also support pulmonary fellows who attend courses that are not available at UMMC facilities.
