Scholarships at the EACTS Academy

The European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery organises educational courses in cardiac and thoracic surgery at the EACTS Academy, EACTS House, Windsor UK. EACTS is offering a series of scholarships for young surgeons who need support for the attendance of the courses. The scholarship covers only the cost of course attendance and meals.

To qualify for this scholarship, candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum of 3 years of cardio-thoracic or combined general surgical and cardio-thoracic training.
