Essential for Relevance

Participate in more than 20 NetWorks that span the full range of clinical and practice issues that chest professionals face today.

CHEST Networks

NetWorks

NetWorks are special interest groups that focus on particular areas of chest medicine. Join any of CHEST's 22 NetWorks to connect with others who have similar interests; help plan educational sessions; take on leadership roles; and participate in the development of policies, opinions, and position statements. Joining and staying involved in CHEST NetWorks provides a pathway to leadership roles.


Primary and Secondary

Join as many NetWorks as you would like, and designate (up to) two primary NetWorks and limitless secondary NetWorks. Primary NetWork designation gives you access to News from Your NetWork, a bi-yearly communication from your NetWork Chair with relevant education course offerings, key events in the CHEST community, and up-to-date information on happenings in your NetWork.

Join multiple NetWorks or change your NetWork affiliation any time by logging in to My Account, and indicate your preferences on the NetWorks page.


Leadership Positions

NetWork membership is a benefit for all CHEST members. If interested in joining a NetWork Steering Committee, visit the Apply for CHEST Leadership page, to learn more about how to get involved.
