As the breadth of interventional pulmonology continues to expand, training in this discipline gains further importance. Interventional pulmonology training in the USA and Europe has common roots and similar concepts; however, there are variations in its delivery. We discuss the similarities, differences, challenges and goals of interventional pulmonology training in both continents. Collaboration and exchange of experiences between the USA and Europe are fundamental to entering the new era of competency/mastery training to implement a multidimensional approach to procedure-related education.
