Thoracic-Surgery-PortraitFrom its outset, the Annual Meeting will feature new sessions including the completely revamped Skills and Postgraduate courses. The full-day Saturday skills courses will be followed by hands-on learning sessions on Saturday evening available by separate ticket. On Sunday the PG courses will consist of new rapid fire presentations from leaders in their respective fields and joint sessions between the congenital and adult courses in the afternoon. The PG courses feature a “Legends” luncheon that will have presentations by Drs. Alain Carpentier, Aldo Castaneda, and F. Griffith Pearson, who will impart their perspectives on their careers as pioneers in cardiothoracic surgery.

The leadership of the AATS looks forward to welcoming all of you to this innovative AATS Week 2014, which begins in New York with the Aortic Symposium and culminates in Toronto with the 94th Annual Meeting. The week will provide a truly international experience where your skills can be retooled and your outlook recharged for our specialty of cardiothoracic surgery. See you there!!
