Education & Fellowships
The division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California is committed to offering its residents excellence in all aspects of cardiothoracic training. The program is designed to address the basic fund of knowledge in our field, establish excellent technical skills, and develop the finest cardiothoracic surgeons in the country.
The core curriculum and extensive case volume combined with the diversity of the hospitals in which our residents train helps ensure that these goals are met. When residents complete the program, they are highly skilled in the operating room, academically sound, and have earned the respect of their peers and faculty.
