Traditional Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowship

Cardiac Surgery Track

The Cardiac Track Program lasts two years and begins after successful completion of a five-year surgery training program. Application is made during the fall of the fourth clinical year of surgery training. The program is designed to train individuals in all areas of clinical cardiothoracic surgery as well as to involve residents in clinical research in cardiac surgery. It is expected that the trainee will obtain sufficient operative experience in cardiac surgery to receive the ABTS certification via the "Adult Cardiac Surgery Pathway."
