Authors: Kristin Eckland, Diego Gonzalez-Rivas

Abstract

Uniportal VATS is the newest development in thoracic surgery. Many thoracic surgeons are interested in learning this technique but are unsure as to how to best learn the uniportal approach. Wet lab courses in Coruña, Spain offer an excellent chance for surgeons to learn about and perform their initial attempts at this approach under the supervision of the inventor of this technique. This course offers a balanced framework consisting of didactic content, observation and a skills lab.
