Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency

Rutgers Health/Newark Beth Israel Medical Center Program

The two- year Cardiothoracic Surgery Residency Program at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center is a Cardiac track program. The program has been in effect since 2016 and attained continued accreditation by the ACGME in 2019. Newark Beth Israel Medical Center is affiliated with the Rutgers University and Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ.

Our Residency Program provides experience in a wide spectrum of required interventions for a variety of cardiac surgical illnesses including: Coronary artery bypass surgery, off-pump coronary artery bypass, surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation, and congenital cardiac surgery. We have a busy structural heart intervention program performing the entire spectrum of procedures such as TAVR, VIV -TAVR, Mitraclip, Watchman, Angiovac etc.

We offer comprehensive treatment for heart failure and end stage lung disease including heart and lung transplantation, mechanical circulatory assistance, and ECMO service.

Although it is a Cardiac track program, residents gain significant exposure to general thoracic surgical cases due to robust thoracic surgical volume at NBIMC and SBMC.

At the successful completion of the residency program, residents will have a broad experience and will be proficient in all aspects of cardiothoracic surgery.
