NYSTS Fall Program & Request Resident Presentations

This is a reminder that the NYSTS fall meeting is approaching. As you are all aware, the format of the meeting has changed, and will be virtual on October 19th for the cardiac and October 26th for the thoracic surgery track respectively. Once again, we will host an amazing panel that includes some of the most prominent surgeons in New York, discussing and debating hot topics in cardio-thoracic surgery.
In accordance with our academic commitments, we invite residents and fellows to submit research abstracts and video presentations regarding interesting and/or unusual cases in the fields of adult, congenital, transcatheter and thoracic surgery. The top four abstracts/videos for each session (cardiac&pediatric and thoracic) will be selected for virtual presentation at the fall meeting. The resident will then make a 4 minutes, 5 slide maximum powerpoint presentation. Each presentation will be followed by a brief 2 minutes discussion that will involve the audience and the panelists. A winner will be selected based on the quality of the submission from each category and will receive a gift certificate of $200.

The details for submission are listed below. Please note that the deadline for submission has changed to Thursday October 1st at 11.59pm.

Research fellows are allowed to present but must be a member of either a 2/3 year or 6 year integrated program in the New York area.
