5-6 Fellows Hired Per Year
The Toronto General Hospital division of cardiac surgery performs 1800 open-heart cases per year. In addition to coronary artery surgery it is the leading cardiac valve and thoracic aorta/arch centre in Canada. The cardiac surgeons perform the majority of the pacemaker/arrhythmia surgery. TGH is the leading ventricular assist/mechanical heart and cardiac (and lung) transplant centre in Canada.
In partnership with cardiology and radiology it is taking the lead in percutaneous and transventricular heart valve deployment. In association with the Hospital for Sick Children, TGH is central Canada's centre for adult congenital cardiac surgery.
Clinical Fellows will be exposed to the full range of adult cardiac surgical services: both straightforward and complex coronary and valve surgery, aortic root and thoracic arch reconstructive surgery, pacemaker and arrhythmia surgery, VAD/mechanical heart and transplantation, adult congenital surgery and team-based pre-operative, ICU and ward-based care of cardiac surgical patients. There are active academic seminars in all aspects of the care of cardiac patients, and the Fellows are expected to be both participants and leaders in these sessions.
