The current state of knowledge regarding multi-modality treatment for lung cancer is continually changing and it is important for surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and pulmonologist to stay up-to-date on the latest recommendations for the management of the disease. Dr. Mark Dylewski and the distinguished faculty from Miami Cancer Institute and Lynn Cancer Institute discuss new advances in the management of lung cancer.  


Internists, Hospitalists, General Practitioners, Pulmonologists, General Surgeons, Thoracic Surgeons, Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Nurses, Dietitians, Pharmacists and techs, Respiratory Therapists, Patient Navigators and all other interested healthcare professionals.  


  • Assess the clinical efficacy of postoperative noninvasive positive pressure ventilation after pulmonary lobectomy. 
  • Develop selective strategies for determining the appropriate extent of resection for individual patients to reduce organ loss. 
  • Assess the outcomes of patients experiencing complications after robotic pulmonary resection. 
  • Identify treatment-related factors associated with an increased risk of major complications. 
  • Identify the benefits of robotic intervention versus thoracotomy or conventional VATS techniques. 
  • Describe morbidity and mortality rate of complete resection associated with robotic surgery in the treatment of lung cancer. 
  • Identify the principles of stereotactic body radiotherapy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer.
  • Analyze and assess outcomes for nonoperative management of locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
  • Accurately assess and execute a thorough workup of a solitary lung nodule.
  • Differentiate and evaluate treatment approaches of a lung nodule versus sampled nodule and when to proceed with surgical resection. 
  • Evaluate bronchoscopic techniques, radial endobronchial ultrasound, navigation bronchoscopy, electromagnetic navigation and robotic platforms. 
  • Describe results of recent clinical trials that combine targeted therapies with chemotherapy.
  • Implement strategies that optimize therapeutic decisions for patients based on individual molecular, genomic and clinical features.
  • Analyze current strategies and standard of care for proper pretreatment molecular and PDL-1 testing. 
  • Execute appropriate treatment with immunotherapy and chemotherapy for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
  • Integrate gene mapping into professional practice updates when treating lung cancer.
  • Identify the most effective treatment plan as a result of gene mapping. 
  • Identify new treatments for resectable lung cancer.
