Start preparing for CHEST Challenge 2022!

The competition will begin in the spring.

An innovative and remarkable history

What once was a state-of-art gamification concept has turned into an exceptional educational experience. Over the last 2 decades, CHEST Challenge has evolved into undoubtedly one of the most popular events at the meeting, where the attendees can get just as much out of it as the competitors.

The brainchild of William F. Kelly, MD, FCCP, when he was a pulmonary medicine fellow, CHEST Challenge has enhanced the professional development of our trainees and brought new voices into the CHEST community.

“This year marks the 20th anniversary of CHEST Challenge, and we have planned quite a few fun things this year to recognize and celebrate this big milestone, including the 20 days of giveaways on social media, leading up to this year’s event and amazing surprises during the live event that will bring back the joy of 20 years of CHEST Challenge.”
