There are eight two-week modules, each devoted to a specific respiratory topic or condition, with slides, readings, and a brief written assignment. Each module is taught by a faculty member with specific expertise in that topic, with one face-to-face meeting per module (~2 hours) to review key concepts, answer questions, and foster critical discussion around the topic of interest. There is a final essay, requiring a more in-depth approach to one of the major subjects covered during the course. Clinical background is not required.
