The Emory Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery offers two-to-three year adult cardiac surgery fellowships to domestic and internationally trained surgeons who have completed their cardiac surgery residencies and desire additional training and exposure to complex adult cardiac surgery. Past fellows have come from all over the globe, including Japan, Jordan, Israel, India, New Zealand, Egypt, Canada, and Syria.
Fellows rotate through Emory University Hospital, Emory University Midtown, and Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital. They work and take call with Emory cardiothoracic surgery residents, and will scrub 250-300 adult cardiac cases per year with the attending surgeons. Cases include on and off CABG, complex valve surgery (including mini-MVR and min-AVR), redo-sternotomies, aortic root and arch surgery, resynchronization therapy, surgical afib ablation, TMR laser therapy, pulmonary embolectomy procedures, left ventricular aneurysmectomies, open and endovascular aortic procedures, and other complex cardiac operations.
