William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education
For the fifth consecutive year, the Friday Center for Continuing Education will undergo a unique transformation from conference center to surgical facility in preparation for the Thoracic Surgery Directors Association Cardiothoracic Surgery Boot Camp. First-year thoracic surgery residents from across the country will join top-notch faculty for hands-on practice in surgical techniques.
This weekend course incorporates simulated emergency scenarios and surgery demonstrations and allows students to experience life-like simulation for surgical procedures including cardiopulmonary bypass, aortic valve repair and lung ventilation.
