The Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons of South Africa
The Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons of South Africa is an independent not for profit organisation of active and retired surgeons specialising in Cardiac or Thoracic who practice in or have affiliations with South Africa. It includes both public and private sector specialists and includes registrars in training as associate members.
The Society is now registered as a special interest group within the Heart Society of South Africa and is registered as a Special interest group with the South African Medical Association.
The society takes an interest in training of specialists and the relationships between the speciality and both Government and private practice organisations.
The Society holds a biennial meeting with help from sponsorship from many of the medical firms involved in the supply side of our speciality. The society is also arranging annual registrar symposia aimed at helping registrars in understanding the range of knowledge expected of trainees and educating them in exam technique to help them in their finals.
