Unit of Thoracic Surgery, Azienda Ospedaliera S. Paolo, Milan, Italy
Dr. Raveglia Federico practices in the thoracic surgery unit at Milan’s ASST Santi Paolo e Carlo, where he divides his time among several activities.

He also conducts visits with cancer patients, both before surgery and in follow-up. In all, this clinical work fills 70% of his time. Another 20% of his time is spent on scientific activities, beginning with the collection of data from hospitalized patients and ending with the publication of articles in national and international scientific journals. These activities are supplemented by a continuous process of professional development that includes participation in training courses and national and international conferences. Finally, for the remaining 10% of his time, Dr. Raveglia Federico works in partnership with AVIS to organize and direct a lung cancer screening program for new blood donors.
