The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine offers an integrated 6-year residency program in cardiothoracic surgery. Our program provides balanced education in all aspects of cardiothoracic surgery, with an emphasis on minimally-invasive procedures. Our
goal is to develop, train and mentor the next leaders in cardiac and thoracic surgery.
Our integrated program (I-6) started in July 2014 and provides 6 years of training after completion of medical school. In collaboration with the Department of Surgery, residents rotate through general surgery, surgical oncology, vascular surgery, transplant
surgery, pediatric surgery, critical care, trauma surgery, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery and congenital cardiac surgery during the first three years of the program to establish strong fundamentals of surgical practice. During the last three years,
residents are educated in all aspects of cardiothoracic surgery including adult cardiac surgery, general thoracic surgery and congenital cardiac surgery, resulting in well-rounded and independent thoracic surgeons. Additionally, our trainees have
dedicated rotations in echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, interventional pulmonary, and cardiothoracic critical care.
Applicants for our ACGME-accredited advanced training programs in cardiothoracic surgery are selected through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
