- Coronary artery bypass grafting

Premier Echocardiography Education
Our echocardiography education is second to none. Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology fellows immediately participate in echocardiography training tailored to their level of expertise and develop their proficiency throughout their fellowship and careers.
In August, fellows are excused from clinical duties for two weeks to participate in Echo Boot Camp, which includes hands-on learning, porcine heart dissection, frequent transthoracic echocardiography scanning, vascular and lung ultrasound, and lectures.
Fellows learn both transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography. Also, fellows easily achieve minimal numbers of exams required for certification in the National Board of Echocardiography’s Basic Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography (PTEeXAM).
