Education

Our international faculty of Certified and Master Instructors advocate for the democratization (some call it liberalization) of knowledge. Our learning materials are free, and many have been translated by generous volunteers. Our educational resources are applicable to medical environments everywhere in the world. 

Bronchoscopy International has conducted more than 30 hands-on training programs in 25 countries and reached 300 physician leaders and more than 1000 doctors-in-training in recent years. Our partners include The World Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology, national universities, and regional medical societies.

Our programs are learner-centric and multidimensional. They include an Introduction to Flexible Bronchoscopy course, a Fundamentals of Bronchoscopy course, and a Train-the-Trainers course to improve skills and teaching abilities using materials such as competency-based objective assessment tools, small group role-playing exercises, case-based learning, checklists, step-by-step technical skill training,  motivational presentations, instructional videos, mobile platforms, interactive lectures, reversed classrooms, simulation/models, and above all, a humble teaching philosophy.
