About OREA

“I do hope you will want to be part of this new initiative supporting our rising respiratory leaders of the future.”

Professor Ian Pavord, Oxford University.

The Oxford Respiratory Excellence Academy (OREA) is an initiative proposed by Professor Ian Pavord from Oxford University and supported by a growing renowned UK and European faculty.

Our inaugural event is primarily aimed at senior specialist trainee and career academic level but OREA welcomes consultants, nurse consultants, specialist nurses, junior doctors and service managers with a desire to share and further their skills, education and careers.


OREA wants to create a respiratory community society for individuals who want to learn, contribute and share in the dynamic area of medicine we work in.

We aim;

1. To further enhance the education and skills opportunities for respiratory specialists as they progress through their careers

2. To share and provide support for independent research in respiratory medicine at a local, national and European level

3. To provide a community for academics, doctors, nurses and service managers to aspire to be the next generation of leaders in respiratory medicine
