About this course

During the past 5 years, there has been rapid industry growth related to bronchoscopy-guided biopsy of peripheral pulmonary lesions. An expanding body of literature increasingly supports robotic bronchoscopic systems and electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy technology.

In this course, you’ll receive leading-edge updates on bronchoscopic techniques for diagnosing lung lesions and masses. Expert faculty members will help you build mastery using interactive simulations on bronchoscopic navigation, robotic platforms, and radial endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS). Apply your advanced knowledge of these state-of-the-art systems directly to your practice as you care for patients with suspected lung lesions.

Explore CHEST’s three-part simulation course series on bronchoscopy:

  1. Comprehensive Bronchoscopy With Endobronchial Ultrasound 
    Set the foundation for critical flexible bronchoscopy and EBUS skills with a focus on diagnosing and staging lung cancer.  
  2. EBUS Masterclass: Tools and Techniques for Optimizing Outcomes 
    Continue building your EBUS knowledge with a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating and staging lung cancer using up-to-date tools and techniques. Stay tuned for details on 2024 course options.
