About DundeeChest

DundeeChest was founded in 2009 by the Ninewells Hospital Department of Respiratory Medicine as a focal point for teaching, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, at the University of Dundee.

Respiratory Medicine is taught in Phase 2, and Phase 3 of the Dundee University Medical School Curriculum, and due to the tight time constraints of the programme, only 5 weeks in total can be dedicated to this fascinating speciality of medicine.

Teaching all of Respiratory Medicine in 5 weeks is clearly a big ask – new methods of teaching, resource management, and assessment have to be researched, and invested in.  The DundeeChest Blog is a focal point of all the innovation in teaching from the respiratory department.  The Blog will be updates with all that is going on in the department, and in respiratory medicine locally, nationally, and worldwide.

Things to look forward to

* The new, improved respiratory examination videos

* Respiratory Medicine Podcast – “lively debate” guaranteed

* Links to lectures, educational resources, and more

* Live webcasts – join a local expert in discussion of “hot topics” via the web 3.0

DundeeChest Blog is in its infancy, but we hope it will grow to become a useful, then essential resource for all things respiratory in Dundee, and perhaps beyond.

Thanks for your support

    We were wondering if you could include http://www.healthline.com/health/copd as a resource on https://dundeechest.wordpress.com/

    Healthline provides a very comprehensive overview of COPD as a critical starting point for individuals and/or their loved ones.

    For more information, visit: http://www.healthline.com/health/copd

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Warm Regards,
