Cardiothoracic Surgery Professional Community members will engage and share knowledge and information with each other via the online Cardiothoracic Surgery Community in ISHLTConnect and will help ISHLT maintain its vibrant and unique multidisciplinary character by:

  • Electing cardiothoracic surgery representatives to the relevant Interdisciplinary Networks (AHFTX, MCS, PVD, ALFTX)
  • Electing a cardiothoracic surgery representative to the Early Career and Trainee Committee
  • Providing a cardiothoracic surgery professional's voice in the Leadership Advisory Forum
  • Providing cardiothoracic surgery content experts to participate in developing and delivering ISHLT’s programs and services and serving in other volunteer capacities
  • Networking with colleagues and engage with each other regarding issues of interest in CT surgery
  • Mentoring surgeons in the early stages of their career
  • Welcoming new surgeons into the Society
  • Identifying cardiothoracic surgery interests and bringing them to the Interdisciplinary Networks and the Leadership Advisory Forum for consideration
