NYSTS Welcome Academic Year 2020-2021 & Fall Program

The recent challenges posed by the COVID pandemic has brought us even closer together as a surgical community, rather than keep us apart. As surgeons on the front line, we share a passion in taking care of patients whatever the illness, keeping our city and state safe, and practicing cardiothoracic surgery.

The regulations of social distancing may change our upcoming meeting structure to a virtual format, with a focus on case based teaching, resident education, and a research symposium. In addition to the biannual meetings which the Society holds every Fall and Spring, the NYSTS is also deeply committed to resident teaching and have organized educational sessions such as mock oral exams for regional residents in Cardiothoracic Surgery. Detailed information for upcoming NYSTS events can be found on this website.

Once again, welcome to the NYSTS. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings and events.
