Now in its 16th year, this is a flexible bronchoscopy course directed by Pallav Shah, which has evolved to a modular format.
It consists of three modules
  • Module one - Basic Bronchoscopy  
  • Module two - Advanced Diagnostic Bronchoscopy 
  • Module three - Advanced Interventional Bronchoscopy
Attendees can apply to attend for one or two of the modules. The modules will cover the theoretical aspects around the relevant procedures, some hands-on simulators and recorded cases.
The Basic Bronchoscopymodule is intended for doctors who are training in respiratory medicine, cardio-thoracic surgery and anaesthetics. It is also useful for consultants who want to refine their procedures.  This module includes at least 3 hours of simulation.
The Advanced Diagnostic Bronchoscopy module is intended for experienced bronchoscopists and hence suitable for experienced registrars and consultants in respiratory medicine and cardio-thoracic surgery who are interested in performing advanced diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures with flexible bronchoscopy.
The Advanced Interventional Bronchoscopy will cover the theoretical aspects around the relevant procedures, some hands-on simulators and video demonstrations. The course also covers developing areas such as bronchoscopic lung volume reduction for the treatment of severe emphysema and bronchial thermoplasty for asthma. 

Learning outcomes

Module one - Basic Bronchoscopy  
  • Basic Anatomy
  • Handling a bronchoscope 
  • Transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA)
Module two - Advanced Diagnostic Bronchoscopy 
  • Assessment and staging of lung cancer
  • diagnosis of peripheral nodules with the use of endobronchial ultrasound 
  • Magnetic navigation guided bronchoscopy
Module three - Advanced Interventional Bronchoscopy 
  • Cryotherapy
  • Endobronchial palliative treatment with electrocautery
  • Management of significant haemorrhage

Target audience

Our vision is to help new trainees progress and also refine the skills of experienced bronchoscopists from basic bronchoscopy to intermediate and advanced interventional pulmonology.

Key speakers

This 16th interventional bronchoscopy course has an extensive international faculty including Professor Felix Herth, Tom Sutedja, Jouke Annema, Dirk-Jan Slebos, Jurgen Hetzel and Alex Babiak. They have all published extensively on interventional bronchoscopy and pioneered various aspects of interventional bronchoscopy.
