Statement of Need
Cardiovascular disease and cancer are the leading causes of mortality and morbidity around the globe. Major advances in these conditions continue to be made at a rapid pace. Improvements in diagnostic techniques as well as interventional approaches to treatment, both surgical and percutaneous, challenge the clinical practitioner to remain current. Increasingly sophisticated technology to accomplish these aims is being developed and introduced into clinical practice. Exciting advances in basic and clinical science offer opportunities for participation in scientific studies and clinical trials. All of these elements create a significant educational need for the practicing cardiothoracic surgeon. The AATS Annual Meeting fills this need through a combination of lectures, original scientific presentations and discussion forums.

Who Should Attend
The AATS Annual Meeting is specifically designed to meet the educational needs of:

  • Cardiothoracic Surgeons
  • Physicians in related specialties including Cardiothoracic Anesthesia, Critical Care, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Radiology, Gastroenterology, Thoracic Oncology and Vascular Surgery
  • Fellows and Residents in Cardiothoracic and General Surgical training programs
  • Health Care Professionals involved in the care of cardiothoracic surgical patients including Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Surgical Assistants and Perfusionists
  • Medical students with an interest in cardiothoracic surgery
