China,United States : 3D Systems develops standardized curriculum for Bronchoscopy in collaboration with the American College of Chest Physicians.

3D Systems announced today an ongoing collaboration with the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) to develop a standardized curriculum for Bronchoscopy on the Simbionix BRONCH Mentor virtual reality training simulator.

The CHEST Standardized Curriculum Module for Essential Bronchoscopic Skills and Diagnostic Bronchoscopy is designed to provide an opportunity to learn and demonstrate basic skills, as well as clinical knowledge and informed decision-making. This new standardized training module combines the expertise of CHEST and 3D Systems, leaders in their respective fields, to provide the most relevant training and assessment within a realistic mode of practice.

We are pleased to partner with 3D Systems to deliver a standardized interventional pulmonology curriculum, allowing individual programs to offer training that's been validated through CHEST's hands-on simulation programs, said Nicole Augustyn, Senior Vice President of Education, CHEST. This partnership is a strong example of CHESTs commitment to providing essential education and resources at critical times for the chest medicine community.

3D Systems experts have worked closely with CHEST course directors to combine theoretical material and clinical decision-making quizzes with hands-on simulation practice. The training modules include video tutorials and tasks that focus on bronchoscopic core competencies, followed by clinical segments in which cognitive and psychomotor skills are challenged and assessed as one entity for the first time. The curriculum covers the complete clinical workflow for patient evaluation based on the Practical Approach that includes initial evaluation, procedural strategies, techniques and results, and long-term management.

3D Systems and Beidestar Technology Development, Ltd., the company's distributor in China, will feature the Standardized CHEST Curriculum on the BRONCH Mentor at the upcoming 2016 CHEST World Conference in Shanghai, April 15-17, in booth 8.
