STS University

The STS 51st Annual Meeting in San Diego will once again feature hands-on wet labs during STS University, which will be held on Wednesday, January 28. Courses will be offered twice—from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. PT and from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PT—so attendees are able to pick two.

STS University courses will be strictly hands-on, and no didactic lectures will be given onsite in San Diego. Attendees are strongly encouraged to view STS University lectures online before January 28. Please select the course(s) you are interested in below to watch the didactic component supporting the wet labs that the course directors have developed.

Please note: No CME credit is associated with the viewing of web-based content. These presentations were created for The Society of Thoracic Surgeons STS University courses, and STS retains sole rights to these materials.
