The Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology provides perioperative care for over 1200 adult cardiac surgical procedures yearly. Our three ACTA fellows participate in a diverse case mix including congenital cases (for neonates and adults), myocardial revascularizations, minimally invasive valves, structural heart procedures (Watchman, TAVR, TEER), VADS (minimally invasive and sternotomy), endovascular and open thoracic aortic procedures, and surgical heart failure procedures (heart transplants, ECMO, and transcatheter pumps). A comprehensive didactic curriculum includes formal weekly fellow education and multidisciplinary TEE and TTE training activities. Fellows consistently engage in scholarly activity through safety and quality improvement projects, clinical and didactic resident education, and academic projects with faculty mentors.
