VATS Virtual Clinical Immersion – Supported by Medtronic

November 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Medtronic is offering a 4-part meeting series that provides a theoretical foundation in advanced VATS techniques.

Each year there is a two-day face to face VATS workshop, though unfortunately due to the current Covid climate this was not possible and needed to be moved to a virtual program. This series has been designed to ensure a continuation towards advanced VATS education and learning.
