2018 TSDA Boot Camp

The 2018 TSDA Boot Camp will be held Sept. 13-16 in Chapel Hill, NC. An announcement about this year’s program, and a call for resident nominations, will be sent via email in early spring and posted on this page. Registration will be open to first-year residents at traditional 2- and 3-year programs who start July 1, 2018, and fourth-year residents as of July 1, 2018 at integrated programs. Only one resident per program may be nominated.

This innovative program provides incoming first-year traditional and fourth-year integrated cardiothoracic surgery residents with an experiential foundation and hands-on practice in basic CT operating skills so that they are better prepared to enter the CT surgery operating room at their home programs.
