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 are special interest groups that focus on particular areas of chest medicine. Join any of the 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. NetWork membership is open to CHEST members.

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

If interested in joining a NetWork Steering Committee, complete the Apply for CHEST Leadership form and you will be notified during our nominations period in the spring.
