CTSIG provides students with information regarding the specialty of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Since students get very little exposure to this exciting surgical specialty in their four years of medical school, this group will give those interested the opportunity to meet and hear lectures from the faculty, fellows, and residents from University of Maryland Divisions of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery. Importantly, we would also like to expose students to the new Integrated Cardiothoracic Residency Training Program offered by the University of Maryland, one of the few of its kind available in the United States. Students will be able to hear more about this from the first two residents to matriculate into this program, and ask questions about the structure of the program, as well as other aspects of the residency and specialty. In addition, there are numerous research opportunities available for students within the Divisions of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery. CTSIG has the privilege of having the Chief of the Division of Cardiac Surgery, Dr. Bartley Griffith, as our faculty advisor. Dr. Griffith is a world-renowned heart and lung transplant pioneer and in 2010, he was awarded the UMB Founders Week Research Lecturer of the Year.
