Talmadge King, MD

Dean of the School of Medicine and Vice Chancellor for Medical Affairs
Pulmonologist

Dr. Talmadge E. King, Jr. is dean of the School of Medicine and vice chancellor for medical affairs at UCSF. His focus in patient care is interstitial lung diseases, in particular idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, connective tissue disease, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, drug-induced lung fibrosis and other rare diffuse lung disorders. King's research interests include pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of inflammatory and immunologic lung disease. He has co-authored eight books, including the acclaimed reference book, "Interstitial Lung Disease," now in its fifth edition.

King earned a medical degree at Harvard Medical School, followed by a residency at Emory University Affiliated Hospitals in Atlanta, Ga., and a pulmonary fellowship at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. He is a member of the Association of American Physicians, American Clinical and Climatological Association and Fleischner Society and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Chest Physicians. He holds the Julius R. Krevans Distinguished Professorship in Internal Medicine and won the 2007 Trudeau Medal, the highest honor of the American Lung Association and American Thoracic Society.
