The Early Career Professional Development Scholarship provides a select number of graduating fellows with access to select CHEST education offerings for 1-year. The goal of the scholarship is to increase and attract young clinicians to CHEST; introduce them to leadership opportunities within CHEST and The CHEST Foundation; and to build a pipeline of future members, volunteers, and leaders for the organization.
