This initiative would not only scale up the existing training program in basic bronchoscopy, train observers in interventional pulmonology procedures, but also introduce the pulmonology observers and trainees to the niche field of Onco-Pulmonology and educate them on the synergistic role of the pulmonologist in an Oncology setup as part of a multidisciplinary team.”
