The California Thoracic Society (CTS) Institutional Membership is for institutions, academic departments or companies committed to partnering with CTS in its mission to improve California
lung health and, through education and advocacy, advance the science and practice of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. In particular, we are a bridge between academic and community
clinicians and scientists. Together with other respiratory care societies in California, we strive to facilitate collaborations in care and research that ensure that patients and their families receive the
highest standards of care. We offer a professional home for practitioners who specialize in underserved areas of pulmonary medicine such as pediatric to adult transition of care, adult Cystic Fibrosis, and Pediatric ILD. Our educational activities include annual conferences in Northern and Southern California, workshops, leadership forums and developing and disseminating professional guidelines. Our recent advocacy efforts have focused on public health issues such as climate change, tobacco control and payer policies for access to care issues.
Institutional Members may sponsor faculty members, associates, and graduate students, post-doctoral and clinical fellows, and residents at their institution outlined by the yearly fee structure below. Each membership year is for 12 months.
