Thoracic Surgery Residency Program

The Thoracic Surgery Residency Program at the University of Virginia was established in 1955 by Dr. William H. Muller. Our current Thoracic Surgery Residency Program Director is Dr. John Kern, and the Associate Program Directors are Dr. Chris Lau and Dr. Curt Tribble. There are currently four Thoracic Surgery training paradigms at UVA, which include:

  • The Integrated Thoracic Residency Program (I-6): 1 resident per year
  • The Joint Thoracic Residency Program (4-3): 1 resident per year
  • The Traditional Thoracic Residency (2 years of CT training): 2 per year
  • The General Thoracic Track Residency (2 years of CT training): 1 per year

(The Traditional Thoracic Residency and the General Thoracic Track Residency have different NRMP Match numbers.)
