The University of Kentucky Department of Thoracic Surgery is seeking a resident to fill the PGY 2 position, for the Thoracic Surgery-Integrated (I-6) Program.
This is a 6 year program that incorporates thoracic surgery into resident training from day one. During the first three years, residents will learn the basics of cardiothoracic surgery by attending labs, conferences and rotating through the services. During these years, the resident will also work to complete the required number of general surgery cases required by the ACGME. During the final three senior years, the resident will be completely focused on cardiothoracic surgery. They will gain their autonomy in the operating room and learn to lead the junior residents through the service. At the completion of the program, the resident will be board eligible in thoracic surgery.
To qualify for this position, the resident must have completed a PGY1 surgical year in either a prelim or categorical position by 6/30/2021.
