Educational Conferences

It is our ultimate goal to prepare our residents not only to satisfactorily pass the ABTS certification examination, but to excel beyond that to a level of expertise that will allow the resident to become a future leader in their area of specialty. To assist in this endeavor we have many educational activities which include:

  • Cardiac catheterization conferences 
  • An important multi-disciplinary general thoracic surgical oncology conference is held weekly with attendance of pulmonologists, oncologist, radiation oncologists, radiologists, as well as thoracic surgeons
  • Surgical Grand Rounds
  • Morbidity and Mortality Conferences
  • Journal club held with area cardiothoracic surgeons
  • Weekly teaching conferences directed by thoracic surgical fellows
  • Research opportunities allowing residents exposure to national meetings
