The CHEST education platform is accredited with commendation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), and CHEST is the only medical society accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. We are committed to being your best source for innovative, comprehensive education in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine and for teaching state-of-the-art skills that are essential for every clinician educator.

Through our international conference and live programs, e-learning library, and hands-on and procedural training at one of the most advanced medical simulation centers in the world, we deliver the knowledge and skills that you need with the flexibility you demand.

The course provides training on teaching skills, including active learning methods, curriculum development skills, and educational leadership skills.


The CHEST Air Tank winner is revealed!

The Air Tank grant challenge grew out of a need for improved digital learning formats during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Finalists Bhavin Dalal, MD, FCCP; Kevin Deasy, MBBCh, BSc; and William Kelly, MD, FCCP, went head-to-head in competing for a $15,000 grant to bring their distance learning proposals to life.

Congratulations to Dr. Kelly for his winning concept, “CHEST Choices.” In this video, he explains how his proposed platform would teach medical knowledge or procedural skills using cinematic storytelling that branches into different directions based on interactive user choices.

The Air Tank judges were Hans J. Lee, MD; Amy Morris, MD, FCCP; David A. Schulman, MD, MPH, FCCP; and Robb Rabito, CHCP.

Information for CHEST faculty regarding VuMedi

CHEST is aware that a company, VuMedi, regularly reaches out to CHEST faculty and invites them to re-record sessions for distribution on their platform. VuMedi delivers video-based education to subscribers via its platform. Content for the platform is generated by mining conference programs and conducting outreach to presenters of sessions of interest.

CHEST does not have a formal or informal relationship with VuMedi, we do not endorse their platform or activities, and we have not authorized them to contact CHEST faculty or provided them with faculty contact information.

You are not prohibited from re-recording your session for another group. However, if you choose to record and distribute your presentation through VuMedi or another group, please refrain from using the CHEST template, branding, or including the meeting name in your titling or presentation.
