Our Mission

The purpose of the Pre-Trainee Committee is to increase medical student and pre-training doctor engagement with cardiothoracic surgery through educational and other relevant activities via EACTS. The committee aims to offer insight into CTS careers, impart fundamental medical knowledge, initiate discussions on emerging topics, and introduce pre-trainees to EACTS early in their careers. The committee aims to inspire and attract talented individuals to become the future generation of CT surgeons.
