Education - Thoracic Surgery 6-Year Integrated Training Program
Welcome to the Medical College of Wisconsin Thoracic Surgery 6-year integrated training program. We are proud to be one of the first institutions to offer this curriculum. In contrast to the tradition model of 5 years of general surgery training followed by 2 or 3 years of thoracic training, we feel that the 6-year integrated model will allow more focused, streamlined cardiothoracic training in addition to allowing greater exposure to adjunct fields important in the multidisciplinary approach to cardiothoracic disease such as cardiology, cardiac catheterization, pulmonary, and interventional radiology. We welcome your interest in our program and invite you to take your time and explore this website. For further information do not hesitate to contact us.
