In the United States, the Core Review Course is attended by nearly all residents prior to sitting their board examinations as well as practicing surgeons wishing to re-certify.
The course will provide a comprehensive review of the core information required for surgeons preparing primarily for Section I as well as Section II of the Intercollegiate Specialty Examination in Cardiothoracic Surgery. In addition, it will be beneficial for candidates preparing for the European Board of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons (EBTCS) examinations.
The course would also serve to provide junior trainees commencing their cardiothoracic surgery career with a solid and broad knowledge base which they can apply to their day to day practice.
