2021 Resident Boot Camp Live

Pediatric Track

The 2021 ATS Resident Boot Camp Live is a virtual training course for internal medicine and pediatric residents (as well as chief residents and hospitalists) who have matched into a fellowship program beginning July 2021.  The goal of the Boot Camp is to prepare fellows entering an adult or pediatric pulmonary or critical care fellowship with the information, confidence and knowledge needed to flourish on the first day of fellowship.  


Participation in the ATS Resident Boot Camp allows attendees to:

  • Acquire knowledge of basic techniques and principles of mechanical ventilation, airway management, and bronchoscopy (indications, techniques, and limitations).
  • Improve knowledge base in cardiopulmonary physiology.
  • Develop strategies to successfully manage common clinical emergencies encountered as a fellow.
