The Integrated (I-6) Thoracic Surgery Residency
The Divisions of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery at the University of Virginia together sponsor our nationally recognized academic training program for Thoracic Surgery. The thoracic surgery program has been training physicians in Thoracic Surgery since 1955 when William H. Muller Jr. MD established the program. Since that time, faculty members of the Division have continued the commitment to excellence in preparing physicians for careers in Thoracic surgery, teaching, and research.
The Integrated Thoracic Surgery Residency program at the University of Virginia, approved January 2011, is designed for residents entering directly from medical school for training in cardiothoracic surgery. Upon completion of the program, residents will be eligible for certification by The American Board of Thoracic Surgery. There is one (1) position each year designated for the I-6 program.
