We’re very excited to launch this new hashtag geared toward trainees and early career professionals. This is a special population within the CHEST community with unique experiences and educational needs, and we want to focus on you for the content! The #CHESTTrainees hashtag will provide regular updates regarding CHEST offerings and opportunities that are pertinent to trainees and early career professionals. It will promote relevant CHEST content and will also share original content developed specifically with trainees and early career professionals in mind.

We anticipate the #CHESTTrainees hashtag will grow to be an excellent resource for trainees and early career professionals, with information ranging from educational materials to opportunities for CHEST engagement to advice about career planning. Of course, it will also give loads of helpful information for making the most out of the CHEST Annual Meeting! The goal is for #CHESTTrainees to be a dynamic learning platform that can connect trainees and early career professionals from around the world, so let us know what things would be most beneficial to you, the future leaders of CHEST.
