Trainee Resource Hub
As a chest medicine trainee, or a specialist transitioning out of training, we strive to provide you with access to personal and professional resources tailored to your career level.
Our goals are to provide each member with the opportunities and resources necessary to become excellent teachers, clinicians, and scholars; to foster active participation and progress in our organization; and to develop exemplary ambassadors of CHEST at local, regional, and national levels.
With this in mind, the Trainee Hub features highlighted resources for each stage of your training.
