How many times (or for how many years) have you served on the faculty for CHEST Board Review? 

I have been part of the faculty for 4 years and as chair for 2 years.

What about CHEST Board Review made you want to be a faculty member for this course?

I took this course as a fellow and loved it. The faculty were fantastic and the experience back then was one I will always remember. Believe it or not, since that time, it was always something I dreamed of doing. Being part of this course has been so important to me because I feel like it is medical education at its finest. It is an excellent course, and the faculty continue to impress me as being some of the best medical educators around!

Why do you think this course is valuable to those who are taking their boards and to those who just want a review of the content to better improve their patient care?

The board review course is extremely valuable to people taking their boards as well as those who are here for a solid review of pulmonary medicine. This course covers what is needed to help when studying for the boards and puts things into perspective of what important topics are that may come up as questions. It really helps the participant organize their material, understand what they do and don’t know, and know what portions of the material they need to spend more time on.

For people who are here for a review, it updates them on topics that they may not see frequently and also updates them on topics that they may see but need the latest information.

What key objectives do you hope participants will get out of it?

  1. Understand topics that are usually covered on the boards.
  2. Obtain an updated review of these topics.
  3. Determine where the individual stands on the knowledge and where he or she may need to focus on for the boards or for practice.
  4. Connect with faculty to ask questions and for guidance.
  5. Reconnect with old friends and colleagues.
  6. HAVE FUN!
