This deeper commitment follows several years of Simbionix BRONCH Mentor™ use during ACCP's professional and diversified educational delivery in its courses and workshops.  In these activities, the simulator is integrated with the full immersion of the instruction used to teach and train basic-to-advanced bronchoscopic procedures.

The goal of this partnership is to develop curricula for bronchoscopy instruction and hands-on training.  Additionally, the collective efforts are aligned to continue to enhance and grow through the use of the BRONCH Mentor simulators that will be located in the new ACCP Innovation and Simulation Center (to open in 2014).  This will allow all participants to obtain the valuable hands-on training that the BRONCH Mentor offers in this state-of-the-art facility.

"We couldn't be more pleased about this collaboration with ACCP.  Simbionix has always worked with physicians and professional societies to provide the most advanced and current training tools available," said Inbal Mazor , Vice President of Marketing for Simbionix.  "We are excited to join ACCP in an agreement that aligns two advocates for bronchoscopy education and reinforces the BRONCH Mentor's training value to reach and demonstrate competence prior to operating on real patients."

"We are making great strides to expand our commitment to bronchoscopy education, and simulation education, in general, and this partnership with Simbionix brings us closer to our goal," said Darcy Marciniuk , MD, FCCP,ACCP President.
