Thoracic Surgery Residency Program
The Ottawa Hospital Thoracic Surgery Division, in close affiliation with the Ottawa Heart Institute, established a successful and well-recognized Residency Program in Thoracic Surgery in 1983. The success of this program is due to adequate clinical volume, clinical research, the Oesophageal Function Laboratory, and dedicated time commitment to weekly multidisciplinary thoracic oncology rounds, bi-monthly multidisciplinary thoracic surgery-radiology- pulmonary pathology rounds, weekly thoracic surgery teaching rounds, quarterly morbidity and mortality rounds, weekly joint cardiothoracic surgery rounds and regular pneumoclub meetings.
Research and Education
The Ottawa Hospital Division of Thoracic Surgery is heavily committed to clinical research and education of patients, undergraduate medical students and postgraduate surgical residents. With the assistance of Surgical Nurse educators, clinical pathways have been prepared for appropriate care of the patients. The surgical clerkship has been coordinated through the Division of Thoracic Surgery since 1983. The surgical residents rotating in Thoracic Surgery are assigned clinical research projects. The Division of Thoracic Surgery actively participates in the clinical trials conducted by the National Cancer Institute of Canada.
