American Thoracic Society Internation Conference 2014: The Big Tent
As the multiple disciplines that make up pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine gather for ATS 2014, the International Conference will have a “big tent” atmosphere devoted to the needs of both clinicians and basic science, translational, and clinical researchers.
ATS 2014 will feature more than 500 sessions, 800 speakers, and 5,700 original abstracts and case reports. Many of the presentations will come from experts in disciplines that intersect with the ATS’s focus on adult and pediatric pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. There will be talks and research presented on infectious diseases, allergy and immunology, thoracic surgery and transplantation, heart disease, environmental and occupational health, and quality improvement.
With sessions and topics touching on this wide range of disciplines, the conference will blend new and novel educational opportunities with traditionally high-demand programs. The ATS again plans to offer American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification Knowledge Points and American Board of Pediatric Maintenance of Certification credits.
Internationally known scientists will participate in the Science Core, a thematically linked set of symposia and abstract-based sessions on aging and senescence, and will also participate in other sessions where they will interact with clinicians as well as scientists.
The learning that takes place at ATS 2014 will not be confined to the educational sessions. The Exhibit Hall is an integral part of the International Conference for clinicians and scientists. Those interested in basic science will have a section of the hall dedicated to their interests, where they can learn more about products and services designed to aid research.
