Our training programs provide the thoracic surgical trainee with:
- Tailored options: In addition to the integrated cardiothoracic 6-year residency program and 2-year traditional fellowship, we also offer a 1-year advanced practice fellowship option, where fellows gain additional focus and clinical experience in general thoracic, adult cardiac, or thoracic transplant surgery while functioning as a junior faculty member.
- Expertise in all aspects of thoracic surgery: With experience and excellent case volume in adult cardiac surgery, general thoracic surgery, and congenital cardiac surgery, we offer balance paired with the opportunities to specialize in any of those fields.
- Faculty invested in teaching and learning: We emphasize a “train the trainer” approach in our education programs, preparing residents and fellows to be excellent clinicians as well as excellent instructors themselves. Whether you go on to academic medicine or private practice, our graduates are prepared to lead in the field with a comprehensive understanding of the specialty.
