CHEST Immersion | Forum
Focused knowledge
from our leading experts.

CHEST Immersion Forum is an intensive, 1- or 2-day, hands-on learning experience specifically designed for sales and marketing professionals.

Led by top medical experts using the latest educational technology, Forum delivers key insights about diagnosis, treatment, and the patient journey.

Whether conducted at CHEST headquarters or your preferred venue, every Forum leverages the educational tools developed at CHEST’s nationally accredited Innovation, Simulation, and Training Center.

Once your team has participated in a Forum, they will feel more confident—ready to engage clinicians at a higher level and drive more productive conversations.

“The faculty that was assembled was so impressive. It was not lost on my team that they were being trained by the top global thought leaders, including those who write the guidelines. The session was, without question, the best training program I have been a part of in my 20-year career in the industry (mostly pulmonary).”

— General manager at a major pharmaceutical company

CHEST Forum is offered in settings that best suit your team:

How could an advanced learning opportunity be any easier to arrange? Send your team members to CHEST’s Glenview, IL headquarters to attend a pre-scheduled Forum Central in our 3,200-square-foot auditorium. Guided by leading experts in the topic at hand, participants will go hands on, exploring disease management using the latest clinical innovations and educational technology. Your team members will engage directly with top clinicians, step into simulated clinical scenarios, interact with state of the art medical technology, meet peers from other backgrounds or specializations, and be challenged to address tough problems or topics in breakout sessions.
