This postgraduate course emphasizes the use of video-based education and in-depth discussion of technical details by faculty who are experts in their field. 


Target Audience


This activity is designed to meet the continuing education needs of thoracic surgeons, as well as others who may assist thoracic surgeons in practice.  Although the curriculum focuses on the most challenging and complex procedures, fellows and residents in thoracic and surgical training programs have also benefited from this course, as have physician assistants and other operative personnel.
