PURPOSE: Linear endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) enables the bronchoscopist to diagnose and stage lung cancer at the same time, offering an effective and safer alternative to surgery up to 90% of the time. With the advent of low-dose CT (LDCT) screening since 2015, EBUS procedures are poised to increase further and require more competent providers to fulfill this need. We surveyed EBUS experts and thought-leaders about the current and future prospects of attaining EBUS competency during a general pulmonary fellowship and their attitudes toward bringing EBUS into a general pulmonologist’s armamentarium.
