This is an invite-only course. Program Directors will receive an email notification in early March to nominate their fellows. Again, this course is geared toward those going into fellowship or in their first year. If you have further questions, please contact Maggie Kosinski.



Our 1-day intensive course allows fellows-in-training to learn new skills and refresh their knowledge through hands-on interaction with experts in bronchoscopy and procedure-related training.

Fellows will acquire essential diagnostic bronchoscopy and pleural technique training in several topics, including:

  • Airway anatomy
  • Biopsy
  • Brushings
  • Ultrasound-guided thoracentesis
  • Small bore chest tube placement

 Attend to experience:

  • Cognitive and skills testing on issues essential to conventional bronchoscopy, and pleural procedures. Pre- and post-course cognitive knowledge testing, as well as testing of procedural skills during breakout sessions, offers a personalized, learner-centric approach to teaching.
  • Case-based, interactive session to encourage honest, individual responses. Group responses will allow faculty to focus on both group and individual learning needs. Only interactive lectures are used in this course, as they lead to better retention, better knowledge gain, and learner’s satisfaction.

Prerequisites

Prior to attending, you will receive materials that form the cognitive base of the course. You are expected to become familiar with the content prior to the course start in order to reduce the need for lectures, so the focus can be on hands-on, interactive training.

Target Audience

Pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows are encouraged to attend.

Item Number: 92511
