Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency
The Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery has an ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) training program in cardiothoracic surgery. It is one of the oldest and best established in the country, dating back to 1964.
Additionally, high school students, physician's assistant surgical students, medical students, and general surgery residents all actively participate in the department's educational programs. A robust conference, lecture and rounds schedule integrates clinical care with sound didactic principles on a daily basis.
