Dear ACCP and SEPAR members, colleagues and friends,
We are pleased to welcome you to the first CHEST World Congress, organised by the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) and with the support of the Spanish Society of Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery (SEPAR).
This ground-breaking event is the first global gathering of leading respirologists, critical care physicians, sleep specialists, cardiothoracic surgeons and allied healthcare professionals from all regions of the world to share best clinical practice.
Bringing together the best in clinical chest medicine from centres of excellence around the world, the scientific programme will provide new insights into the latest advances in pulmonary and patient care. Highlights include global case presentations, patient-simulated exercises and innovative education sessions to help you maximise quality and performance metrics to benchmark and improve your clinical practice.

We look forward to stimulating scientific exchanges and to advancing the best in global pulmonary research and care with you.
