Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowship

The goal of the non-accredited Cardiothoracic Surgery Fellowship is to provide safe, cost-effective, timely, patient-centered, high-quality care in the following areas: Pre-operative, operative, and post-operative, including critical care of the patients. This includes surgical care of diseases of the heart (coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease) and great vessels, lungs, airways, esophagus, chest wall, mediastinum, diaphragm, and chest injuries. There will also be an opportunity to participate in congenital cardiac surgery, cardiothoracic transplantation, and mechanical circulatory support.

The fellow selected for the program will have completed an accredited General Surgery Residency Program. This individual will have the necessary skills and knowledge in surgical principles, techniques, and management of disease processes. The focus of our program is to build on these strengths and accomplishments. The fellow will be given graduated responsibilities with supervision to diagnose and treat thoracic illnesses surgically and non-surgically as indicated in a patient-centered environment. The clinical learning environment is conducive to delivering safe, effective, cost-efficient, timely, compassionate care.

Individual experience can be tailored towards a specialization in aortic surgery, arrhythmia surgery, or percutaneous valve therapies.
