Cardiothoracic Surgery

Education

The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery offers a Thoracic Surgery Residency and Aortic Fellowship.

The Thoracic Surgery Residency is a three-year program that accepts four residents annually. The residency program emphasizes the central role of the residents in the management of thoracic surgical patients, striving to impart core values as lifelong goals for the residents and help them become educators for life. 

The Aortic Fellowship provides specialized training in aortic surgery beyond cardiothoracic residency training in an environment that is aortic-focused and stresses clinical excellence. The fellowship includes an intense clinical experience in aortic and adult cardiac surgery.
