Workforce, training and education
East Midlands


The East Midlands offers a compact, comprehensive training program by a closely co-ordinated committed faculty.

We have a perfect record in our trainees passing the FRCS(CTh) exam first time and have placed 9 of our last 9 CCT holders into Consultant posts.

We accept that training a general cardiothoracic surgeon is no longer feasible and will aim to train Consultant Cardiac Surgeons and Consultant Thoracic Surgeons with highly developed specialist interests.
