Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling: Initial Laser Bronchoscopy Training for the Physician Beyond His/Her Formal Training Years (Part 2)

During the years 1984 to 1986, we offered four courses in laser bronchoscopy at Henry Ford Hospital. Each course lasted 2 to 2^xh days. The didactic material was presented during morning sessions, and consisted of the following topics: 1. Overview of Lasers in Medicine 2. Laser Physics and Tissue Interaction 3. CT Scans and Other Radiographic […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling: Initial Laser Bronchoscopy Training for the Physician Beyond His/Her Formal Training Years (Part 1)

As best possible, the prospective course attendee should determine the content of the course. For laser courses generally (not specific for laser bronchoscopy), the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery has proposed a statement regarding Standards of Practice which refers to training: Hospital privileges are, and must remain, the responsibility of the hospital governing […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling (Part 5)

Moreover, I would suggest that the complexity of the procedure is considerably greater for laser bronchoscopy than it is for diagnostic or other therapeutic bronchoscopy, so the skills tend to take longer to learn and give rise for greater potential misadventures. What avenues are open to assure the best possible training for all who want […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling (Part 4)

Similar phenomena are taking place now with regard to training in laser bronchoscopy. At present, few physicians have been trained as a natural part of their residency/fellowship programs, so the majority of physicians who wish to become involved in performing laser bronchoscopy must begin by attending a laser bronchoscopy course. Before attending a laser bronchoscopy […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling (Part 3)

There were several problems in trying to conduct such training. First, practicing pulmonary physicians tend to be a busy lot, and the demands of other patient care issues often made it difficult to come to the teaching hospital on a regularly scheduled basis, even when the teaching institution was located in the same metropolitan area. […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling (Part 2)

A similar situation exists at the present time as it pertains to training in laser bronchoscopy. The methods of dealing with the demand for training are very much like what was observed for fiberoptic bronchoscopy; physicians have a desire to learn a new technique after they have already completed formal training in a residency or […]

Training in Laser Bronchoscopy and Proposals for Credentialling (Part 1)

Surgical techniques are usually learned during the course of a formal residency or fellowship program in a particular discipline. However, from time-to-time, a new technique is devised which is of significant interest to physicians who have already completed their formal training, and of potential benefit to a number of patients, that the technique “catches on” […]
