This activity has been devised to formalize the Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship application process, and to allow applicants and program directors to consider every option for training without undue pressure being placed on either party. Institutions participating in the TSDA Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship Match must be accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The TSDA Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship Match will be conducted by the Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship Subcommittee, which will consist of the President of the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association or his/her designated TSDA member representative, and the Chair of the TSDA Congenital Cardiac Fellowship Program Directors Committee. The Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) offer separate and distinct services that will not be utilized for the TSDA Congenital Cardiac Surgery Fellowship Match.
