Who We Are

The UCSF Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Program is dedicated to improving the lives of patients with interstitial lung disease, or ILD. We do this by focusing on patient care, education and research, and community building.

The program specializes in the comprehensive care of people with all types of ILD. We provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment recommendations, working as a team to review each case thoroughly so as to optimize disease and symptom management. We communicate directly with patients and their referring doctors to assure continuity of care and appropriate follow-up.

As part of an academic medical center, we are committed to meeting the educational needs of our community. For patients and families, we hold seminars on ILD and offer a support group for anyone affected by this condition, called Living Well With ILD. For doctors and other health care providers, we offer continuing medical education sessions on interstitial lung disease as well as a quarterly newsletter.
