Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Thoracic Surgery Integrated Training Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

NYP/Columbia is a nationally recognized, high quality and innovative center with high surgical volume that utilizes advanced techniques and procedures. The Program began in 2010 when the first two residents were accepted. This innovative, accredited program accepts applications for two post graduate positions each year. The program utilizes an initially balanced approach to surgical diseases, combining rotations in the General Surgery program with rotations in the cardiac and thoracic specialties, including cardiology interventional cardiology, intensive care, imaging, vascular surgery, acute care surgery and other traditional general surgical blocks. Integrated into this, on an increasing basis, are rotations in both Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery. This program represents a unique experience to train in a high volume, innovative, major academic and clinical institution.

Thank you for your interest in our program and we welcome you to learn more about us.
