Welcome to the Bronchoscopy Education Project. The purpose of this project is to provide bronchoscopy educators and training program directors in the United States and abroad with competency-oriented tools and materials with which to train student bronchoscopists and assess progress along the learning curve from novice to competent practitioner. Material can be incorporated in whole or in part, as needed by each program.
The first element of the project was to create a standardized curriculum (schedule, content, assessment tools, training models, and train-the-trainers instruction) pertaining to an Introductory Course in Flexible Bronchoscopy (includes inspection, lavage, brushing and endobronchial biopsy, transbronchial lung biopsy and conventional transbronchial needle aspiration). A second element of the project pertains to endobronchial ultrasound, and a third element of the project pertains to an introductory course in interventional flexible bronchoscopy.
This project is a work in progress and will be updated as the components become available. We invite your comments as you use these materials.
