2019 Cardiothoracic Surgery Residents

The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery is committed to developing surgical skills among residents and faculty. Our conferences educate students, residents and faculty; showcase Department and other visiting faculty; and foster camaraderie within the Department and within the local surgical community. We strive for an exciting environment that fosters the intellectual development of students, residents, and practicing physicians alike. Our motto is: Examine, critique and change what needs to be changed.
