One of the great strengths of the ATS International Conference is that it’s multidisciplinary. Beyond the Society’s three pillars - pulmonary, critical care and sleep - clinicians and researchers in many other fields attend the conference, enriching the conversation and leading to insights that ultimately improve patient care.
There are many other specialties that are well represented at the ATS International Conference and sessions of particular interest within these specialties. Among these specialties are Allergy/Immunology; Behavioral Science; Cardiology & Cardiac Surgery; Environmental & Occupational Health; Hospitalists; Infectious Disease; Nursing; Pediatric Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep; Thoracic Surgery; and Physiology. Many allied health professionals, including nurses and respiratory therapists, attend the conference.
The ATS International Conference is the premier meeting in the world that brings together clinicians and scientists interested in the care of adults and children with respiratory disease and critical illness.

The roots of the American Thoracic Society reach back to 1905, when a small group of physicians decided that the best way to improve care for tuberculosis patients was to share their experiences and discoveries. Today, the ATS has grown into an international society with more than 15,000 members. In this introductory section, you will find information about the people and programs that make the ATS the world's leading medical association dedicated to advancing our clinical and scientific understanding of pulmonary diseases, critical illnesses and sleep-related breathing disorders.
