You’re also invited to take advantage of CHEST’s exclusive, free Leadership Development course held at CHEST 2021 in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday, October 16.

NEW! CHEST member surveys

CHEST has recently begun facilitating quantitative research survey distribution as a service on behalf of individuals and institutions. As part of this service, independent researchers can select specific targeted NetWorks for dissemination.

The Interprofessional Team NetWork was chosen for a survey on medical direction in respiratory care. This survey is specifically for hospital medical directors in departments of respiratory care. See the link below to take the survey. Please note CHEST does not endorse these surveys, and NetWork chairs review surveys prior to distribution only to ensure the content aligns with the interest of the NetWork.
