CHEST Challenge 2019

US-based CHEST fellows-in-training - does your fellowship have what it takes to win CHEST Challenge 2019? CHEST Challenge is a fun and exciting competition in which CHEST fellows-in-training compete against programs around the country for honor and prizes! The first round of the competition consists of two parts: social media challenges and online quiz. The aggregate score for both of these components will be used to identify the top three highest scoring teams. These top three teams will then be invited to send three fellows each to the CHEST Challenge Championship, a Jeopardy-style game show that takes place live during the CHEST Annual Meeting.
