Course Description

This STS course is a series of virtual sessions that will offer cutting-edge information on robotic cardiac surgery, including mitral valve repair, coronary bypass, and other procedures. The online curriculum will be led by world-renowned instructors with successful track records in robotic surgery. 

The course is designed for surgeons and teams interested in starting a robotic cardiac surgery program, as well as experienced surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, perfusionists, supporting program administrators, and other team members seeking to enhance their skills. The course includes six weekly sessions composed of prerecorded, narrated video lectures and demonstrations that will be enhanced by a weekly, 30-minute live, interactive panel discussion. A course director will moderate each live panel, which will feature speakers from that week’s session.
