Thoracic Surgery: Optimizing Your Early Career Outcomes and Practice
This 1.5-day program led by Dr. Keith Mortman and Dr. Allan Pickens is designed for early career U.S. Thoracic surgeons, as well as fellows and residents in a U.S. Thoracic program, who want to expand their knowledge and skills through didactic and hands-on lab sessions regarding the latest advances in Thoracic surgery. The interactive sessions will address current topics in Thoracic surgery such as patient care pathways, VATS techniques, managing potential complications, operating room teamwork, and discussions on surgical practice beyond formal training. The inanimate, animate and cadaveric hands-on lab segments provide opportunities for participants to practice Thoracic surgery techniques utilizing advanced stapling and energy devices, adjunctive hemostats, and wound closure products.
