CHEST Challenge 2020

Get Ready for the CHEST Challenge Championship Finals

Tuesday, October 20
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm CT

It’s game on! Cheer for your favorite team during the CHEST Challenge Championship. Each year, CHEST Challenge gives pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows-in-training an opportunity to compete for fun and prizes!

Fellow members competed in preliminary rounds in April with a fun social media challenge that allows teams with the correct answers to compete for fun prizes. Then the challenge was taken to the next level with an online quiz. Now players from the top three teams will go head-to-head in a virtual Jeopardy-style game. Watch the teams compete online while challenging your own knowledge. Who will take the title this year? Place your vote below and attend to find out!

  • Decisions of the CHEST Challenge judges are FINAL in all disputes.

  • It is at the discretion of the training program director for each team how the prizes are distributed to trainees within the program.
  • Each training program director is responsible for encouraging rules compliance; any infraction to the rules by a player from a program may lead to disqualification of the entire program from this year’s competition.
  • The three top-scoring fellowship programs that competed in the live CHEST Challenge championship in the prior year are not eligible to become finalists for this year’s competition, although they are eligible for all other prizes.
