I think he's bored with Pulmonary..He is also the head of the Sleep Disorders program.

As stated above I believe he should choose one career to focus on and then give it all his attention. Like most people one can get bored doing the same specialty for 30 years ie Pulmonary... the fact that he is the Head Honcho of Sleep Disorders speaks loudly that he sought out new challenges, however the sad truth is that one of the specialty's suffers and along with that just might be the patients.
