Remote teaching and learning: a leap into the future

Gustavo Cumbo-Nacheli, is a board-certified interventional pulmonologist working with the Spectrum Health Medical Group in western Michigan. A leading innovator in the field of bronchoscopy, he is an early adopter and advocate of robotic-assisted bronchoscopy. In February 2021 he became the first to use Proximie alongside a robotic assisted bronchoscopy platform in order to stream a bronchoscopy procedure.

“This culminated in a world-first: using Proximie to stream the first robotic bronchoscopy internally at Spectrum Health, as a proof of concept.”

“The “see one, do one, teach one” methodology is an old gestalt from dogmatic teachers; Proximie allows for a greater emphasis on seeing, communication and instant, flexible, on-going proctoring.”

“Proximie’s algorithms, software and technology constitute what I believe to be the holy grail of virtual learning and teaching — and I see it as a technological segue enabling us to leap into the future.”
