Welcome to the Division of Thoracic Surgery Residency Training Program
The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) training program includes two years of clinically-oriented instruction in all aspects of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery. The resident declares a training track as defined by the Residency Review Committee in the final year. Completion of training is contingent upon this selection, as the resident develops special expertise in the track chosen.
Previous residents who have completed the Cardiothoracic Residency Program have obtained positions at the University of Iowa, University of Alabama at Birmingham, University of Chicago, St. Louis University, Boston University, University of Texas at Galveston, University of Washington at Seattle, Georgetown University, Tulane University, and The Cleveland Clinic, while others are in private practice in various cities throughout the United States.
