Welcome to the “6th International Uniportal VATS Course - Live Surgery, Drylab and Wetlab”. This is a three-day-masterclass symposium under scientific leadership of the Ernst von Bergmann Academic Hospi-tal of the Humboldt-University Berlin Charité in Pots-dam, Germany together with the University Hospital Charité in Berlin, Germany, the University Hospital in Coruña, Spain and the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital, Tongji University Shanghai, China.

The first masterclass course took place in the year 2014 and has become the traditional course where all experts in the field of uniportal VATS meet and ex-change their experiences with participants from all over the world. The course is now well established and pro-vides training at the highest level. Our goal is to pro-mote a non-dogmatic learning environment that brings together people from different centers and schools of thoracic surgery from all around the globe.

Whether you are an experienced surgeon or still in training, this course will deepen your knowledge in Uni-portal VATS.

This symposium will take place in Potsdam and will address “Troubleshooting” in Uniportal VATS through lectures, discussions and video sessions on the first day. The first part of the second day will include Live Surgery of major pulmonary resections via Uniportal VATS, and the second part will be a drylab (Lung mod-el, ENB and Robotics). The third day of this symposium is a Hands-on class (Wetlab) for a limited group.

We look forward to your participation!
