Response to COVID-19

Pediatrics Pulmonary fellows social distancing
Content

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do many things.  The safety and health of our fellows are our first and foremost priority.  The program strictly adheres to institutional guidelines and recommendations.  Key information includes:

  • Telehealth encounters are utilized in place of in-person clinic encounters when appropriate. Fellows continue to see their own panel of clinic patients through telehealth with supervision commensurate to the fellows’ skills and abilities.  
  • Fellows work remotely from home in academic activities unless there is a patient care reason they should be at work.  
  • ACGME supervision and work hour requirements have not changed.
  • Pediatric pulmonary fellows have not been redeployed to other areas of the medical center.
  • PPE is available in all clinical settings. There is no shortage of gowns, face shields, N95 masks, surgical masks or gloves.
  • A minimum of six feet between all persons are maintained whenever possible.
  • Virtual conferences are utilized in place of in-person conferences. All regularly scheduled pulmonary educational conferences continue to take place with the same level of attendance and participation.
  • GME and Department of Pediatrics educational leadership host virtual trainee town halls to maintain open lines of communication and transparency.

Maintaining physical and emotional wellness is a prerequisite to professional success. Our fellows have access to a number of programs to support their well-being. For more information, click here. In addition, Fellows College hosts an annual wellness day event where all of the pediatric subspecialty fellows come together to relax, eat and have fun. Our pulmonary fellows are an incredible support network for one another at work and outside of work. Life- long friendships develop every year between fellows as well as faculty.

“All Houston-area residents are now minorities; all are being called upon to build something that has never existed before in human history: a successful, inclusive, equitable, and united multiethnic society, made up of nearly all ethnicities and all the religions of the world, gathered together in this one remarkable place.”

Stephen Klineberg, Ph.D., Kinder Institute for Urban Research, Rice University, from Prophetic City: Houston on the Cusp of a Changing America.
