Rush University Medical Center is ranked among the best in the nation for pulmonary care, lung surgery and otolaryngology. We offer a spectrum of medical and surgical approaches that includes the latest innovations in surgery for endobronchial malignancies and the utilization of minimally invasive approaches to treat upper airway disorders.

Our team of thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists and otolaryngologists have designed a CME program to meet the educational needs of practicing primary care physicians, pulmonologists, critical care intensivists, medical oncologists, residents and allied health professionals. We will discuss how we have adapted to the changes in the pandemic and highlight the relationship between COVID-19 and tracheal stenosis. In this forum, we’d like to extend an opportunity for you to discuss future developments and applications to practice.
