Please note that this is a 1-day, invite-only course that takes place on either date listed.

CHEST contacted all program directors (PDs) in its system to notify them of this opportunity for fellows and to submit nominations. To ensure your PD is in the system, contact with his/her name and email address.

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 and testing of procedural skills during breakout sessions offer 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 satisfaction.


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

First year pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows are encouraged to attend.
