Dear Colleagues,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we canceled the yearly Immersion Course in Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery. To maintain our commitment to share experiences and learn from our Latin American colleagues and colleagues from around the world, we will have a one day live webinar on August 28th, 2020.

The course will maintain our tradition of bringing real-world topics on the management of patients with lung cancer. We invite physicians, surgeons, and allied professionals to register for the webinar.

Registration is available on the website, and it is free.

The webinar program is exciting, and the faculty is top-notch. The possibility of interaction among participants will enhance the learning experience. We expect that this educational activity will add to your continuing education and hopefully add to your surgical practice.

Hope to see you there!
