The NYSTS is pleased to commence its 101st academic year. Our traditional fall meeting was Thursday October 25. It will feature resident scientific presentations and our guest Speaker will be John Morley, MD. Dr. Morley was the former Medical Director for the NYS Department of Health and chaired NYS DOH Regulatory Modernization Committee for Cardiac Surgery CON regulations.
We will continue our attended Mock Oral Program in the winter of 2018-19. Andrew Kaufman raised the bar last year with his learning sessions, and we expect an even larger turnout this year. Thank you to all of the faculty who participated. Feedback was excellent from all of the examinees, we hope more will be involved this year to help truly simulate this important milestone. The Sixth Annual NYSTS Mock Oral Boards will be held on Saturday March 30th, 2019 at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan.
We will finish our academic year with the annual spring meeting on May 16 at Smith and Wolenski. We will be using a debate style format of current hot topics in cardiothoracic surgery. If you have any ideas to be considered, please contact Isaac George (firstname.lastname@example.org).
