We want to welcome you to the ATS Assembly on Clinical Problems website. We are a diverse group of adult pulmonologists, surgeons, and other allied health care professionals involved in the care and research of the patients with a diverse array of underlying pulmonary diseases. The primary goal of the Assembly is to improve the care of pulmonary patients through research, education and the dissemination of cutting edge information to clinicians and researchers.

The Assembly has four standing committees:

The Planning Committee is responsible for developing the long-term strategy of the Clinical Problems Assembly. It is the place where members can have input into future projects and activities. The chair of the Planning Committee is Bradley Drummond, MD.

The Program Committee is responsible for organizing the Clinical Problems Assembly Program of the International Conference. Clinical topics, clinical workshops, evening and pre conference postgraduate sessions and the review and organization of presentation of close to 1,000 abstracts are the major activities of this committee. The Chair of this committee is Maryl Kreider, MD

The Nominating Committee is responsible for nominating candidates for Chairs of International Program Committee and the Clinical Problems Assembly. 

The Executive Committee provides oversight for all Clinical Problems Assembly functions. It convenes monthly to discuss Assembly issues and to foster the development and integration of all Assembly activities. The chair of the committee is MeiLan K. Han, MD, MS

Our assembly welcomes and actively supports new fellows, clinicians, researchers and other health care professionals who are interested in the clinical care and research of pulmonary diseases.
