Cardiothoracic Surgery Interest Group

The CTSIG is an active and engaging interest group that provides opportunities to expose medical students to the continuously changing and exciting field of cardiothoracic surgery. We offer students unforgettable activities such as: suture and surgical knot clinics, aortic valve replacement clinic, lectures, shadowing opportunities, and great mentorship. We also have ‘on-call’ students interested in transplantation who experience heart or lung transplants from procurement from the donor, to transplantation in the recipient. This exciting experience requires travel, usually by ground or private jet. Many students report that this is one of the most influential activities they have experienced in medical school. Future opportunities in research and summer internships are also offered. The group also helps disperse information about the Summer Scholars Program that accepts students in between M1 and M2 years for a summer long internship alongside the CT surgeons. Our surgeons at The Ohio State University are hands-on and excited to teach the future of medicine!
