Conference registrants receive complimentary access to our ATS Member Community for 90 days!


The ATS has partnered with DocMatter to bring you a member resource designed to help you save time: the ATS Member Community!

ATS members are now able to connect with your peers easier and more efficiently than ever before – each member is paired with a member of the DocMatter Team to provide technical support, as well as personalize your experience based on your specific clinical interests and assist with helping our highly-qualified members find Discussions to which you can lend your expertise. You can even dictate what you'd like them to post to the ATS Member Community on your behalf! 

The ATS Member Community is an online environment built specifically for health care professionals to learn, collaborate by specialty area, mentor, share career advice, and otherwise network with your peers. The ATS Member Community should be reminiscent of in-person educational events, in that it is moderated, organized, and supported by a team of professionals to help you save time and find your cohort.

The ATS Member Community helps members start open, in-depth, clinical and research-based discussions with questions on cases, the latest research, emerging technologies, best practices, or other topics of interest among your fellow ATS Members. You can use any procedural video, journal article, or other point-in-time educational event as the basis for group dialogue on the topic - like a mini-meeting session – and keep the Q&A going all year long, so member interactions do not need to be limited to a couple of times a year. 

We look forward to hearing what you think and seeing your posts in the ATS Member Community

    • A question or comment about your favorite session from the ATS International Conference
