Cardiothoracic Surgery Rotation

This is a PGY-1 and PGY-4 rotation intended to give all residents a basic familiarity with cardiothoracic surgery as well as significant cardiothoracic ICU experience.

At the conclusion of the rotation, residents should be able to demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiologic conditions of the bean and great vessels which are amenable to surgical correction
  • The ability to appropriately manage patients with pathologic conditions of the heart and great vessels within the purview and context of general surgery training
