The AATS Foundation Honoring Our Cleveland Clinic Mentors Program is for North American cardiothoracic surgery residents in the chief/penultimate year of their training to participate in a full-day program at the Cleveland Clinic to obtain a basic understanding of the steps necessary to secure their first full-time position following completion of their training, developing areas of expertise, and beginning their careers in an academic program. Successful applicants are invited to attend this valuable course and will be provided with a $1,000 stipend to help cover their travel and hotel expenses. Participants are also welcome, but not obligated, to attend an evening reception preceding the program and a Grand Rounds Presentation/OR Observation following.
The AATS Foundation’s Honoring Our Cleveland Clinic Mentors Program highlights
those who have significantly contributed to the cardiothoracic surgical
specialty. Through this important program, the establishing donors aim to honor
three past members of the Cleveland Clinic staff who have also served as
Presidents of the AATS: Delos M. Cosgrove, MD, Floyd D. Loop, MD, and Bruce
W. Lytle, MD.
