Teaching is integral to the practice of chest medicine. With a focus on mentoring members and hands-on learning, CHEST prides itself as home of the clinician educator.

“In the last 10 years, we’ve recognized that medical education is rapidly evolving,” said Chair of the CHEST Educator Development Subcommittee Victor J. Test, MD, FCCP. “The vast majority of our meeting is based on active and interactive learning. That takes a skilled presenter and educator to make it work. We’ve recognized with our simulation program that you can have highly skilled people but not highly skilled people in teaching a particular sub-skill.”

That’s why CHEST has really focused its efforts on clinical medical education in the past decade. If you are a current clinician educator, or are interested in the path to becoming a CHEST faculty member, you can attend the Clinician Educator track at the CHEST Annual Meeting. This exclusive track includes energizing sessions and lectures designed to develop and enhance the knowledge of current and up-and-coming leaders and educators in chest medicine.

“CHEST has always been interested in mentoring our members who are in academia to grow into fully-fledged active members, as well as fully competent and highly-trained,” Dr. Test said.

CHEST is the only medical society to be accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, as well as the only major pulmonary, critical care, or sleep society accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education With Commendation.

A few years ago, CHEST created the Distinguished CHEST Educators program to recognize the top percent of faculty for their achievements and long-term contributions to the design and delivery of CHEST education.

Dr. Test said CHEST is working on developing programs that go beyond that recognition and give people a tangible reward for their participation in clinical education.
