  2. Describe three strategies for improvement of lung cancer tissue adequacy in the era of molecular profiling in NSCLC.
  3. Review the immunology of lung cancer as relevant to immunotherapy, and how to obtain adequate samples.
  4. Recognize the radiographic features of subsolid lung nodules that are most worrisome and may warrant a more invasive approach.
  5. Describe disparities in lung cancer screening.
  6. Review the unique advantages and disadvantages of the two currently available robotic bronchoscopic platforms and the current literature that exists regarding each platform.

  8. Delineate the most common primary pleural tumors, and the updated histological classification of malignant mesothelioma.
  9. Develop familiarity with evaluation and treatment options during lung cancer survivorship, including home-based physical activity, evaluation/treatment for sleep disturbance, screening for and managing depression, and identifying and treating functional deconditioning.
