Graduate medical programs

Fellowship in Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at Zucker School of Medicine 
The cardiothoracic faculty and staff at Northwell Health believe the best way to train cardiothoracic surgeons is through an integrated, hands-on approach with increasing levels of responsibility. This is why we offer a two-year comprehensive, ACGME-accredited thoracic surgery residency program.

Integrated Thoracic Surgery Residency Program at Zucker School of Medicine
The Integrated Thoracic Surgery Training program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital and Southside Hospital is a six-year comprehensive experience in general surgery, medical subspecialties and clinical cardiothoracic surgery, including pediatric cardiothoracic surgery, general thoracic surgery and adult cardiac surgery.
