2023 STS Boot Camp
The STS Boot Camp is designed to provide an experiential foundation and hands-on practice in basic cardiothoracic operating skills. Resident participants will receive expert instruction and utilize simulators that enhance the learning experience by replicating real-world cases and emergency scenarios.
Resident attendees will meet their 20-hour simulation requirement mandated by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. Other benefits include:
- Exposure to a simulated OR environment for cardiac and general thoracic procedures facilitated by CT surgery leaders
- Extensive one-on-one interaction with CT surgery leaders from around the country
