Foundation courses aim to provide comprehensive overviews of subjects. Surgeons-in-training will have a unique opportunity to discuss clinical challenges with experienced faculty and peers from around the world. The curriculum formerly delivered at the European School for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery will now be presented as the Foundation courses. In addition, a series of Advanced Modules will be available.
