Patrick Kosciuk, MD, is an experienced physician specializing in critical care medicine, internal medicine and interventional pulmonology.
Dr. Kosciuk earned his medical degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine, continuing to complete his residency at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in the focus area of internal medicine.
He then went on to complete his fellowship at UC Medical Center in the focus areas of pulmonary/critical care and interventional pulmonology. As a first-year fellow, he was honored with the Outstanding Fellow Award by the Internal Medicine Department, largely for his academic accomplishments.
Within the field of interventional pulmonology, Dr. Kosciuk can be described as the clinician educator of the group and is currently working toward pioneering a rotation for medical students with him and other physicians in the field. He would like to provide perspective for learners who have not determined their field of practice just yet, as well as give insight into what this new and emerging field has to offer.
In addition to this, Dr. Kosciuk also strives to construct a more formalized curriculum for residents and general pulmonology fellows who rotate within his department.
“I value teaching, and given that we have one of the most robust academic programs in the tri-state area with learners from all levels, including medical students, residents and fellows, this is an excellent location to practice and share knowledge with those who thirst for it,” he said.
Dr. Kosciuk explains that science is the foundation on which we practice as an academic institution. And that, through science, physicians and advanced healthcare providers such as himself, are able to truly change outcomes and, ultimately, save lives.
