Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Thoracic Surgery
Boston, MA

Narrative
For over a century, Brigham and Women’s Hospital has been a leader of innovation in the field of cardiothoracic surgery. We have committed ourselves to produce a leader in the field through our clinical excellence, residency teaching and basic/clinical research.  We will match two residents; one for cardiac track and one for thoracic track.

Residents will receive the training at the world’s renowned hospitals, such as Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital and West Roxbury VA hospital. The guidelines of the training program are as the following.

Junior Residency: PGY 1-3
The junior residency consists of the first three years, and a many rotations are in general surgery. Approximately three-fourths of the PGY 1 year is on general surgery rotations; one-half of the PGY 2 year; and one quarter of the PGY 3 year. The residents will also spend time in cardiac surgery both at the Brigham and West Roxbury VA during PGY 3, thoracic Surgery during PGY 1 and 3 at the Brigham during PGY 3 and pediatric cardiac surgery at Boston Children’s during PGY 3. The residents will also spend time in both cardiac and thoracic ICU as well as time in the echocardiogram laboratory and cath laboratory.

Two year Research and Enrichment Period:
Between the PGY 3 and PGY 4 clinical years, residents are required to take 2-3 years for laboratory research; translational research; or an MPH study. During this time, they take call on the TSS and CSS services at night.

Intermediate Residency: PGY 4
The PGY 4 year is the transition between junior resident and senior resident and consists of core rotations on the Thoracic Surgery Service and the Cardiac Surgery Service.

Senior Residency: PGY 5-6
For residents in the cardiac track of this program, the first year is divided into a six-month rotation in the Cardiac Surgical Service, five months on the Thoracic Surgical Service and a one-month elective rotation in interventional cardiology. The second year is divided into two six-month chief resident rotations between BWH cardiac surgery and Children’s Hospital cardiac surgery.

For the general thoracic surgery track, the residents will spend in their first year six months on the Thoracic Surgical Service (as chief residents on the white team) and six months in the adult and congenital cardiac surgery service. In their second year, they will spend six months on the Thoracic Surgical Service, three months on the Cardiac Surgical Service and 3 months on an elective rotation in radiology, pathology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pediatric cardiac surgery or lung transplantation.

Residents will also receive weekly didactics on Wednesday morning based on TSDA curriculum. We also provide additional teaching rounds to accommodate clinical case based teaching.

Applicants should register through the NRMP and provide a completed application through ERAS. The NRMP program code number for the BWH/BCH I-6 programs are 1265461C0 for the thoracic track position and 1265461C1 for the cardiac track position. Programs participating in ERAS may only accept those application materials sent electronically through ERAS. We will not accept any additional supporting documents by mail.

Requirements and Deadline

We require the following documents to be available for download through ERAS for a complete application to be reviewed:

  • Curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Medical school transcript
  • Personal statement
  • Dean’s letter
  • Three letters of recommendation

We do not require a chairman’s letter and do not review any applications until they are complete.

The format will be only one interview date, and will not be able to schedule any individual interview dates outside of the session.

The format for the Interview days begins with a welcome reception on the evening prior to the interview day. The Interview Day begins with a breakfast during the early morning check-in time, followed by an orientation session with the Division Chiefs and Program Directors. Afterwards, each candidate will meet with groups consisting of four to five faculty members in each room.
