Education

Our Certified and Master Instructors strongly believe in the democratization (some call it a liberalization) of knowledge. This is why our learning materials are available for free, translated into multiple languages, and readily used in diverse medical environments. In recent years, more than 25 training programs have been held around the world, reaching more than 200 physician leaders and almost 1000 physicians-in-training. Partnering with The World Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology and regional medical societies, our multidimensional Fundamentals of Bronchoscopy curriculum includes a Train the Trainer program to help physicians improve their skills using objective assessments, role-playing exercises, case-based learning (practical approach studies), checklists, step-by-step technical skill training,  motivational presentations, instructional videos, mobile platforms, interactive and reversed classroom instruction, inanimate and computer simulation, and learner-centric education philosophies. Educational materials include:

  1. The Essential Bronchoscopist© series of eBooks and interactive presentations.
  2. Competency-oriented Bronchoscopy Assessment Tools, Checklists, and Simulation scenarios.
  3. Bronchoscopy Step-by-step instruction using computer-based simulations and inanimate models.
  4. Small group sessions, role-playing exercises, communication skills practice, and competency testing.
  5. Practical Approach case-based studies to enhance clinical judgement and case analysis.
  6. Mentoring and instruction using Heads-on/Hands-off instructional techniques.
  7. YouTube instructional videos (BronchOrg channel).
  8. Our University on an iPad collection of bronchoscopy simulations (BronchPilot Anatomy, BronchPilot EBUS, and BronchPilot Virtual).

For an overview, please see “Curriculum for Learning Flexible Bronchoscopy” presentation.

The Essential Bronchoscopist®
This series of question-answer modules  enhance the acquisition of bronchoscopy-related factual knowledge. The Essential Flexible Bronchoscopist©, The Essential EBUS Bronchoscopist©, The Essential cTBNA Bronchoscopist© and The Essential Intensivist Bronchoscopist© are also available on Amazon.com and Kindle.
Art Of Bronchoscopy©
This series of PowerPoint presentations focuses on Fundamentals (BAL, Bx, Brush, TBLB, and cTBNA) .
BronchAtlas PowerPoint®
A collection of slideshows and PDF files on a variety of clinical issues and airway disorders.
BronchAtlas© Video Series for iPhone and Android
A PDF eBook collection of ten bronchoscopy-related problems with solutions and linked YouTube video-files.
Bronchoscopy Step by Step©
Exercises help you learn technical skills in the same way we learn to dance, practice a sport, or play a musical instrument. Demonstrative YouTube videos are available on our BronchOrg YouTube video channel.


Bronchoscopy Assessment Tools©
Testing is to teaching what tasting is to cooking. These validated assessment tools objectively measure technical skill and progress along the learning curve. 

 

Practical (Four Box) Approach©
Clinical case scenarios and presentations focus on strategy and planning, techniques and results, and response to complications. These case-based exercises enhance cognitive, technical, affective, and experiential knowledge of procedure-related medicine.

 

BronchPilot Anatomy 
Imagine an iPAD loaded with Bronchoscopy Education Project learning materials! As this video shows, The BronchPilot Anatomy™ application uses dual touch-screen technology and links to instructional videos to help doctors learn airway anatomy, mediastinal lymph node position, and bronchoscopy technique.
