The Board of Cardiothoracic Surgery encourages all Cardiothoracic trainees to undertake a period of supervised surgical research during SET training.
Up to twelve months of approved supervised surgical research will be accepted as a part of the six year program. It is preferable that trainees enrol in and obtain higher research degrees as a part of this experience.
It should be emphasised that it is a Royal Australasian College of Surgeons requirement that all trainees undertake an investigative project as part of their training.
