Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine

Leadership

Gregory J. Redding, MD
Professor
Division Chief

Overview

The Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Division emphasizes the comprehensive and compassionate care of children with respiratory-related disorders, clinical and basic science research, and training in pulmonary medicine for medical students, residents, pulmonary fellows, and allied healthcare providers.

Our mission is to improve the health of children with respiratory-related disorders through fostering advances in patient care, thoughtful research, and the comprehensive training of health care providers.

Clinical Programs

The Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Division uses a multidisciplinary model of patient care. In addition to seeing the physician or nurse practitioner during the clinic visit, we have a nutritionist, social worker, nurse educator, and respiratory therapists that are available for consultation. At Seattle Children’s Hospital we have clinics in chest medicine/asthma, sleep disorders, and cystic fibrosis. We also provide sleep and chest/asthma clinics at the Children’s Bellevue and Everett branches.

Providers can refer patients to these clinics using the Seattle Children’s Hospital referral process.

For appointments, please call: (206) 987-2174, option 1

Research Programs

Examples of current research interests among divisional and non–divisional faculty who may work with fellows in the division include: lung development, lung injury models, asthma, RSV preventive therapies, clinical and basic research on pseudomonas endobronchial infection in cystic fibrosis, and gene therapy related to cystic fibrosis.

Training Programs

The Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Division (University of Washington School of Medicine/Seattle Children’s) is an Accredited 3-year Pediatric Pulmonary Fellowship Program, and participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
