Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Training Program

Educational Conferences


It is our ultimate goal to prepare our residents not only to satisfactorily pass the ABTS certification examination, but to excel beyond that to a level of expertise that will allow the resident to become a future leader in their area of specialty. To assist in this endeavor we have many educational activities which include:

  • Cardiac catheterization conferences 
  • An important multi-disciplinary general thoracic surgical oncology conference is held weekly with attendance of pulmonologists, oncologist, radiation oncologists, radiologists, as well as thoracic surgeons
  • Surgical Grand Rounds
  • Morbidity and Mortality Conferences
  • Journal club held with all area cardiothoracic surgeons
  • Weekly teaching conferences are held and directed by the thoracic surgical residents
  • Research opportunities allowing residents exposure to national meetings
