STS Continuing Medical Education (CME) Mission Statement
The continuing medical education mission of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons is to provide a forum for reporting results of scientific research and for updating information in the disciplines of cardiovascular, general thoracic and congenital heart surgery.  The principal continuing education programs conducted by the Society include an annual scientific meeting, self-study programs, and other stand-alone meetings. The Annual Meeting is composed of peer-reviewed scientific abstracts, invited overview presentations, small group presentations, presentations on new technologies, hands-on sessions and video programs.  The broad scope of topics related to cardiothoracic surgery is covered during each Annual Meeting.  In addition to and separate from the national meeting, topical meetings are held that focus on relevant information needs of cardiothoracic surgeons.  These educational sessions frequently highlight a multidisciplinary approach and include content relevant to cardiothoracic surgeons as well as other physicians and health care providers in related disciplines.  STS programs are developed and provided with the intent of confirming existing knowledge base, imparting new knowledge, and promoting competence in the content areas covered for cardiothoracic surgeons, residents and their allied health care providers.
