Repeat Practice Yields Repeated Success for TSDA Bootcamp 2016


The Chamberlain Group Contributes to TSDA Bootcamp
for 7th Consecutive Year and Overwhelming Success

“The TSDA achieved its goal of providing incoming residents with an experiential foundation and hands-on practice in basic cardiothoracic operating skills so that they are better prepared to enter the CT surgery operating room at their home programs. The Chamberlain Group’s role as an equipment supplier and exhibitor was essential to the program’s overwhelming success, and its support is deeply appreciated.”

Students from 40 different residency programs participated in the TSDA Bootcamp, a four day intensive introduction to the fundamentals of cardiothoracic surgery. These sessions allowed residents one-on-one interactions with highly dedicated faculty from across the country. Use of simulators for both the cardiac and thoracic sessions provided a platform for skills assessment, initial training, and a basis for ongoing deliberate practice. TSDA Boot Camp Program Directors this year included Drs. George Hicks, James Fann, Richard Feins, Jon Nesbitt, and Nahush Mokadam.
