Host Institution: New York University
Host Mentor: Aubrey Galloway, MD
Vasily Kaleda is interested in heart valve disease, but
many new techniques and treatments are not widely
used in Russia. Aware of the historic role of Americans
in cardiac surgery, he applied for the fellowship.
I was dreaming about going to any American cardiac
surgery clinic to acquire new skills and knowledge.
Starting in May, he hopes to learn minimally invasive
heart valve and complex aortic surgical techniques. He
is also looks forward to observing the organization
and staffing of a modern cardiac clinic.
I hope this fellowship will help me to improve cardiac
surgery in my country in the future.
