Congenital Clinical Practice Standards Committee

The CPSC nominates surgeons to writing groups within and outside of the AATS to contribute in a meaningful way to the guidelines and best practices that steer the Congenital specialty.

This group also identifies cutting edge topics that the writing groups within the AATS thoroughly research and give guidance and recommendation on through the creation of expert consensus documents.
