Course Overview

The Duke Center for Surgical Education and Innovation presents the 13th Annual Masters of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery Conference sponsored by the Duke Division of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. As one of the leading surgery programs in the world, Duke Department of Surgery is currently ranked #2 for surgical medical education by U.S. News and World Report and #3 in NIH funding among surgery departments nationwide.

 

The 13th Annual Masters of Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery brings together world-renowned surgeons who will share the latest advancements in minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques through didactic and video-based presentations. For over 20 years, course director Dr. Thomas D’Amico has taught video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy at medical institutions all over the world. Dr. D’Amico was recently appointed to the Editorial Board of the Annals of Surgery.

 

Join us for an interactive event where you can discuss the technical aspects of the most challenging procedures, share your most difficult cases, and be part of in-depth discussions with our national and international experts.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the continuing education needs of thoracic surgeons, as well as others who may assist thoracic surgeons in practice.  Although the curriculum focuses on the most challenging and complex procedures, fellows and residents in thoracic and surgical training programs have also benefited from this conference, as have physician assistants and other operative personnel.

Learning Objectives

After attending this program, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the advantages and technical considerations associated with the minimally invasive strategies in the management of basic and complex thoracic disorders
  • Discuss the conduct of minimally invasive thoracic surgery through analysis and critique of videos
  • Explain the process by which technically advanced procedures may be incorporated into surgical practice
  • Discuss controversial issues, emerging techniques, and future directions in minimally invasive thoracic surgery

Accreditation

In support of improving patient care, the Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the health care team.
