After completing part of his fellowship at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Dr. Christopher Halpin, who specializes in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, decided to join the CTCA® team. “I experienced firsthand the patient-centered model at CTCA, and I wanted to continue my career in such an institution," says Dr. Halpin.
Dr. Halpin attended Fordham University in New York, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 2000, and completed additional graduate coursework at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.
He earned his medical degree at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia in 2005. He remained at Temple University Hospital for a residency in internal medicine from 2005 to 2008, and a fellowship in sleep medicine from 2008 to 2009. He then completed a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Drexel University in Philadelphia, serving as Chief Fellow from 2010 to 2011.
During his medical training, Dr. Halpin participated in numerous clinical research studies, involving chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hepatorenal syndrome, and the relationship between tumor and dyspnea. He has published research on the connection between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and sleep disordered breathing. He has also presented his research at several annual meetings of the American Thoracic Society.
Dr. Halpin is board certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, sleep medicine and critical care medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is a member of the American Thoracic Society and the American College of Chest Physicians.
At CTCA, Dr. Halpin participates in staffing the intensive care unit, and provides inpatient and outpatient consultations in both pulmonary and sleep medicine. He is able to employ recent technology for his patients, including bedside ultrasound in the intensive care unit, and endobronchial ultrasound to help gain an accurate diagnosis. “At CTCA, I have the ability to provide the time and attention that our patients deserve and that their complex medical history demands,” he says.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
