ENABLING CONTINUOUS LEARNING – EDUCATION

The ATS provides year-round educational opportunities and resources for adult

and pediatric pulmonary, critical care, and sleep clinicians at all stages of their

careers.

• The Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing

Medical Education (ACCME) to provide CME credit for physicians. Through

the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and American Board of

Pediatrics (ABP), the ATS provides opportunities to earn Maintenance of

Certification (MOC) points and credits, respectively.

• The ATS Store offers on-demand access to clinical education webcasts

and MOC Self-Assessment Products (SAP) allowing learners to move

seamlessly from lesson to test and earn ABIM and ABMMOC points at their

convenience.

• A variety of learning opportunities exist for those in training, including

the Fellows Track Symposium, Resident Boot Camp, and ATS Student

Scholars Program at the International Conference, and the online Career

Development Center.

Members have access to a wide array of education resources to help them

advance their careers.

ADVANCING RESPIRATORY SCIENCE – ASSEMBLIES

Assemblies are subdivisions of the Society composed of members with similar

interests within the broad fields of respiratory disease, critical care, and sleep

medicine. The 14 assemblies are responsible for creating and updating ATS

statements and position papers. They also participate in the planning of the

International Conference.

Members, especially fellows and young researchers, have unique opportunities

through the assemblies to network, identify mentors and collaborators, and

advance their careers. Members can join three Assemblies at no additional cost.

MAXIMIZING THE VALUE OF MEMBERSHIP – OTHER BENEFITS

Members receive discounts on a variety of products and services that include:

Springer respiratory books, car rentals, posting a job on the job board, insurance

plans, and more. Members also have access to the ATS Member Roster and can

download a custommembership certificate.
