Meet the Trainees
Each of our fellows also participates in clinical or translational research projects throughout their fellowship with the expectation that their work will be presented at regional and national meetings. For those interested, the San Francisco Bay Area also offers rich opportunities to collaborate on resident-driven surgical and oncologic innovations.
The UCSF Thoracic Surgery Residency Program provides broad exposure to cardiothoracic surgery as practiced in quaternary-care academic medical centers as well as community-based / managed care settings. There is a strong emphasis on traditional open surgery as well as the latest minimally-invasive techniques such as robotic-assisted VATS surgery as well as minimally-invasive mitral valve repair.
