Session Types

Clinical Controversy

Leading authorities debate a controversial topic.

CHEST Games

Educational tools that employ game-thinking and mechanics where the principal intent is designed for the express goal of improving medical education. Serious games offer the ability to extend learning outside of the classroom and can offer attractive options in experiencing the complexity of the real world within a simulated environment. Chairs and faculty for selected sessions will work with educational design staff throughout the summer prior to the meeting to create content using selected templates.

Interactive Session

Audience response systems put you in the middle of presentations, allowing you to respond to questions and compare group results.

Interdisciplinary Programs

Interdisciplinary education is focused on optimizing patient care by integrating the diverse perspectives of the medical care team. The attendees form multidisciplinary teams to work together in interactive, small groups, utilizing simulation demonstration, case-based studies, small group exercises, and audience participation to work more effectively together in team-based care, and improve patient outcomes.

Meet-the-Professor

Renowned professors present topics from their fields. Session format allows you to consult the experts in an intimate setting of no more than 24 registrants per session.

Panel Discussion

Panels of authority discuss topics, giving you an opportunity to hear a variety of viewpoints.

Plenary Presentation

Single speakers present an overview of specific topics, so you can develop a comprehensive understanding.

Postgraduate Course

A Comprehensive full- or half-day educational session focused on decision-making and relevant clinical skills. Faculty for these sessions are specifically selected for their subject matter and educational expertise. Active learning methods may include case-based studies, problem-based learning, hands-on simulation, small group exercises, and interactive didactic lectures.

Problem-Based Learning

Resolve real-world clinical problems during small group, interactive sessions designed to exercise your critical thinking skills based on guidelines. The goals of PBL is to help the participants develop flexible knowledge, effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation. ] Problem-based learning is a style of active learning. Working in groups, participants identify what they already know, what they need to know, and how and where to access new information that may lead to resolution of the problem. The role of faculty member is to facilitate learning by supporting, guiding, and monitoring the learning process. Participants will leverage the Learning Management System to gain access to valuable resources in advance of the session, and come prepared to work on the PBL during the live session. Chairs and faculty for selected sessions will work with educational design staff throughout the summer prior to the meeting to create content using standardized templates.

Case-Based Discussions

Discussions centered around clinical cases, using audience-response systems and other active learning techniques to facilitate discussion. Study cases related to pulmonary, critical care, or sleep medicine, and use audience response systems to respond to questions posed and compare your clinical judgment with your colleagues and the experts. These sessions are often smaller than the general sessions, offering the opportunity for more discussion than is typically feasible in large lectures. Chairs and faculty for selected sessions will work with educational design staff throughout the summer prior to the meeting to create high yield, clinically useful content and optimize audience interaction.

Simulation Sessions

Simulation based, hands on procedural learning.
