November 5, 2019

Are surgeon-scientists a dying breed? Dr. John Ikonomidis is the lead author of a new paper that explores the decline of surgeons who are applying for and receiving grants, publishing less, and feeling that research is not a part of their role. He joins host Dr. Tom Varghese in the latest episode of “Beyond the Abstract,” a program that explores the “whys” behind an article in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery and discusses next steps with authors and thought leaders. Read The Annals article online: “Attrition of the Cardiothoracic Surgeon-Scientist: Definition of the Problem and Remedial Strategies.”
