Resident Research

The divisions of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery offer a wide range of research projects for residents to choose from. Projects are available through the Cardiovascular Research Institute, our large animal research lab, the Thoracic Esophageal Motility Lab, or collaboration projects with medical device industry. We are very flexible and allow residents to pursue research in Cardiothoracic Surgery that will enhance their surgical training. We currently have one Congenital Cardiac Surgery Research fellow and two (2) Research Fellows in the Thoracic Esophageal Motility Lab. Residents are required to publish an article in a Cardiothoracic medical journal each year of residency. Funding is provided for travel for residents who present their work at various regional, national, and international conferences.
