ACTA Fellowship

The Fellowship in Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology at Washington University offers dynamic and flexible program to develop expert level skills, judgment and competence in clinical care of cardiac and thoracic surgical patients. Our ultimate goal is to train the fellows to be motivated physicians who are highly skilled and professional and who can offer impeccable care to the sickest patients. We encourage critical thought, healthy academic debate and cutting edge research. Apart from routine cardiothoracic procedures, we have an extensive local expertise in

  • lung and heart transplantation
  • adult congenital cardiac surgery
  • esophageal surgery
  • aortic surgery
  • complex valvular surgery
  • cardiac assist device surgery

We have a strong interest in promoting dual critical care medicine/adult cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship training. Nearly half of the faculty in the Division of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology are critical care trained and attend in the SICU and/or CTICU. For more information regarding dual CCM/CT fellowship training at Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital please refer to the Dual CCM/ACTA Fellowship Overview.
