Abstract

Due to its intrinsic characteristics, video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy is currently the recommended surgical approach for early stage lung cancer treatment. The importance of increasing the number of surgeons capable of performing VATS lobectomies is implicit and of utmost importance. In fact, the need of performing independently and routinely VATS lobectomies for early stage lung cancer will soon be a prerequisite to the new generation of thoracic surgeons. The feeling that VATS lobectomy teaching should be part of their training is strongly felt among trainees but, at the moment, a formal, uniform and certified process of learning VATS lobectomy is not available in all training centres. Perhaps, through the supervision, support and aid from national and European Thoracic Surgery Societies, programs of integration of recognized, standardized and certified teaching of VATS lobectomy could be planned and undertaken by the training centres, both at national as well as European level.
