COMMITTEE MISSION STATEMENT

The Residents Committee is devoted to represent the views and interests of European residents, identify issues in training and facilitate education. The Committee aims to find common ground in current European Training Programmes in order to develop standards in surgical training. It collaborates with other agencies in manpower planning. The Committee encourages membership of EACTS, promotes communication channels and supports academic activity. It works together with the domains and other committees of EACTS (and other organisations, other disciplines, cardiology). Its members endeavour to carry out their tasks with commitment and transparency and ensure accessibility to the Committee for all European surgeons in training.

BIOGRAPHY

Through a continuous improvement of the cardiothoracic training, we will be able to keep the future surgeons’ skills level at bay with the increasing complexity of the patients. It is of utmost importance to keep advancing the treatment options. By being an active member of the German Association for Cardiothoracic Surgery I have gained experience in managing such projects. Nevertheless, I believe that true progress can only be achieved by an exchange of knowledge and expertise across Europe. It is for this reason I am thrilled to be able support and advance this common ground with the residents committee.

BIOGRAPHY

I am a cardiac surgery resident based in Kyiv, Ukraine undergoing training at the department of myocardial pathology, transplantation, and mechanical circulatory support. Joining the EACTS Residents Committee this year as a member of non-EU country is extremely important for me since this is a perfect chance to expand high standards for education and training beyond European society. I truly believe that sharing our knowledge and experience around the world will allow to create a community where everyone will ‘speak the same language’ of professionalism and high-quality skills. My personal surgical interests involve heart failure, transplantation, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery, which is a bit controversial up to date, however precipitously stealing the future.
