Course Description
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is pleased to provide an intensive hands-on, three-day course designed to review the current concepts and recent advances in interventional pulmonology as it pertains to the cancer patient, and to introduce new technologic advances that have revolutionized the diagnosis, staging, and management of lung cancer.

Malignancies involving the lungs continue to provide a significant challenge to chest physicians. With the exponential increase in technology, several minimally-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are becoming feasible. As the largest cancer center in the world, MD Anderson is able to offer a depth and breadth of clinical experience and training that few can match. With a distinguished faculty made up of the world’s top experts, this course is designed to provide the participant with a state-of-the-art review of the principles and practice of interventional pulmonology in patients with thoracic malignancies.

A flipped classroom model will be utilized that promotes self-directed learning, reinforced by case based discussions and interactive didactic sessions. Participants will also receive extensive practical instruction in selected techniques utilizing in vivo animal models and high fidelity simulation. Instruction group size is limited in order to maximize interaction and individual hands-on time. Additional instruction can be individualized for those wishing to emphasize particular techniques. Endobronchial ultrasound, medical thoracoscopy, guided bronchoscopy and therapeutic bronchoscopy techniques will be particularly stressed. Upon completion of the course, participants should have acquired the cognitive skills to manage complex patients with thoracic malignancies.

Target Audience
This conference should be of interest to board-eligible/certified pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and trainees in pulmonary, critical care medicine and thoracic surgery who have an interest in interventional pulmonology.
