All cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons are welcome to become Members of the Working Group on Cardiovascular Surgery. Physicians and nurses involved in the care of surgical patients (anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, cardiologists, perfusionists, physician assistants) are also invited to join.

Our Working Group adds the surgical dimension to the ESC. We work to actively promote themes of common surgical and medical interest in ESC sponsored meetings and programmes. 

If you believe that surgeons are major partners of cardiologists and want to advance the interests of the specialty then join our Working Group!
