Polish Respiratory Society (PtChP)
The Polish Respiratory Society (PtChP) was established in 1934. It began as the national organization of physiatrists that was tasked with assisting in scientific issues related to tuberculosis, encouraging and introducing doctors to scientific work, and popularizing and publishing activities. Currently, the society includes more than 800 doctors of various lung-related specialties (mainly specialists in lung diseases and people with higher education qualifications related to health protection in the field of tuberculosis and other lung diseases). The Polish Respiratory Society has 17 sections covering the entire field of respiratory medicine. These sections play a crucial part in providing training for medical doctors but also undertake consultative activities for the relevant areas of interest. The Polish Respiratory Society is a member of the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), and other pulmonological societies from Central and Eastern Europe.
