Meet the Chief

Steve Dudek, MD

Steven Dudek, MD Professor of Medicine           Chief, Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep and Allergy

We pride ourselves on our commitment to innovative basic and clinical research, excellent patient care, and quality education.

Our division directs the medical intensive care unit at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System. We provide consultative services to the cardiac intensive care unit, stem cell and solid organ transplantation unit, and the neurosurgical intensive care unit, as well as to inpatients and outpatients on all adult services. In addition to our involvement within the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, we operate several outpatient pulmonary, allergy, and sleep clinics on the UIC campus. We treat both common and unusual illnesses, and our team of faculty members are actively involved in research concerning asthma, bronchiectasis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, scleroderma-related lung disease, sleep apnea, tuberculosis and other mycobacterial diseases.

Our division recently added a Sleep Fellowship program. Both the Pulmonary and Critical Care and Sleep fellows are an integral part of all of the division’s many operations. As a division, we are passionate about respiratory and sleep-related issues, and we strive to foster an environment of learning and research partnered with an exceptional, compassionate approach toward our patients.

Goal/Vision: Outstanding patient care, research, education, and service to our community.

Overview

The mission of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep and Allergy at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine is to provide:

Outstanding, compassionate, state-of-the-art and cost-effective care of our patients with pulmonary, allergy, and sleep disorders, and to the critically ill;

Quality education to our fellows in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, our residents in internal medicine and our medical students;

An environment of inquiry with innovative basic and clinical research, which aims to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of disease and the lives of our patients.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
