2024 Leadership Institute Session 3: Leading Every Day: Applying Skills and Networking

Activity Description

The STS Leadership Institute develops skills for cardiothoracic surgeons that have become vital as healthcare delivery grows more complex and rapidly transforms. Physicians who have the necessary leadership skills are essential for medical teams to adapt and work together effectively in order to provide the best patient care. The STS Leadership Institute is targeted for early-career and mid-career surgeons who are STS members (not applicable to current residents and fellow trainees).

It includes five events: three virtual sessions and two in-person meetings. The Capstone event will take place in Los Angeles, CA in conjunction with STS 2025 Annual Meeting.

A dedicated workforce has implemented a rigorous and realistic course plan for the 2024-25 cohort. The encapsulated courses should guarantee a successful leadership path upon completion of all five activities.
