The Thoracic Surgery Residents Association (TSRA) was established in 1997 under the guidance of the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association (TSDA). The TSRA Executive Council is responsible for managing the activities of the TSRA and for planning future direction for TSRA. The Executive Council is composed of TSRA representatives who have designated responsibilities with the leading organizations in Thoracic Surgery and Resident Education. A President and Vice-President are elected yearly by the TSRA Executive Council and take the lead role in determining the course of the TSRA.

The TSRA meets twice a year at the STS and AATS Annual Meetings. TSRA’s meetings are open to all thoracic surgery residents who are encouraged to become involved. Visit www.tsranet.org for more information about TSRA events, programs, and resources.
