Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery


UC Irvine’s Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery is dedicated to educating future cardiothoracic surgeons. During rotations with the cardiothoracic surgery team, surgical residents are challenged to master the complex hemodynamic and physiologic alterations found in critically ill patients. As a result, many of our surgical residents have been placed some of the nation’s prestigious programs. In addition, the division provides a rich educational environment for third- and fourth-year medical students who receive individualized attention during their rotations through one-on-one discussions with attending physicians and participation in the operating room team and clinical units.
