New York State Thoracic Society

About The New York State Thoracic Society

Each year, the Program Chair and the President, with the help of the rest of the Executive Committee organize a 2 day CME conference. The NYSTS Annual Conference is hosted on a rotating basis by various New York City area medical centers consisting of lectures by renowned speakers, poster exhibits, and interactive case presentations as well as industry support booths.

The conference fee includes annual society membership dues. Membership will also provide access to past conference lecture slides. The society is also engaged in advocacy efforts in the state capital of Albany and is interested in expanding its role in education of Pulmonary/ Critical Care fellows in the New York City area and beyond.
