Thoracic Clinical Practice Standards Committee

New! Listen to leading experts discuss a recently published AATS Expert Consensus Document on staging and multidisciplinary management of patients with early-stage non–small cell lung cancer.

The CPSC nominates surgeons to writing groups within and outside of the AATS to contribute in a meaningful way to the guidelines and best practices that steer the Thoracic specialty.

This group also identifies cutting edge topics that the writing groups within the AATS thoroughly research and give guidance and recommendation on through the creation of expert consensus documents.
