Semmelweis University’s Department of Pulmonology is the largest academic health care provider in Hungary. In addition to the most frequent airway diseases, thoracic malignancies, e.g. lung cancer, and infectious lung diseases, our institution is a dedicated center for interstitial and autoimmune lung diseases, sleep disorders, pulmonary hypertension, and lung transplantation.

An international level non-invasive ventilation respiratory therapy unit, extended bronchoscopic units and right heart catheter invasive diagnostics help our work together with a complex spirometry, body-pletysmography and ergospirometry and chest and cardiac ultrasound laboratories. Our faculty of pulmonology participates significantly in gradual and postgradual education of Semmelweis University.

Our basic science and clinical research work is reflected in many international peer-reviewed papers published by our coworkers.
