The July 16-18 courses are now full.

July 16, 17, OR 18

This is a one-day, invite-only course held on one of the dates listed. Email communications will be sent to the Program Directors to nominate fellows.

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

Experience:

  • Cognitive and skills testing on issues essential to conventional bronchoscopy, and pleural procedures. Pre- and postcourse 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.

Course Format

The lecture-based learning for this course will be done online prior to the course date. You will receive access to the recorded lectures and will be expected to review all sessions prior to arriving for in-person learning. The in-person session will focus on hands-on, interactive training with expert faculty, who will share their skills and answer questions.

Target Audience

Incoming and first-year pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows are encouraged to attend. They must be nominated by their Program Director. To ensure the PD is on the list, please email fellowscourse@chestnet.org.
