CHEST Challenge India

CHEST Challenge 2019 India Edition

CHEST Challenge India is a fun, educational event designed to enhance fellows’ involvement in the American College of Chest Physicians® (CHEST) and the CHEST Annual Meeting. Each year, physicians from India are invited to take a multiple-choice online quiz, testing their knowledge of pulmonary medicine.

The two highest-scoring individuals will be invited to attend CHEST 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and watch the CHEST Challenge US Finals.

CHEST Challenge India is now closed. Ranking results will be announced via posters in the respective medical colleges. No individual scores will be provided. Winners will be contacted shortly.


The winning team of two players will receive:

  • Free registration to CHEST 2019
  • Free round-trip airfare from India to New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Free hotel accommodations (up to 4 nights)

In addition, individual contestants with the top 20 highest scores will each receive 1-year access to the CHEST SEEK Pulmonary Medicine Library, and individual contestants with the top 50 highest scores will receive CHEST Basic membership for 1 year.

Recognition of winners will be done through an unrestricted educational grant by Cipla.
