Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon

chirurg1The Thoraxcenter is authorized for the Cardiothoracic Surgery training. The cardiothoracic surgeon training at present lasts 6 years, including 2 years general surgery. As a result of social changes consideration is being given to restructuring this training scheme, in particular with regard to tying in with the basic doctor's training and with regard to the preliminary training in general surgery. The Cardiothoracic Surgery department has 3 training places. In addition this department provides placements within the specialist training in anesthesiology and cardiology. The placement "heart surgery for congenital defects" is also provided for cardiothoracic surgery centers that do not practice this part of the subject.
