Program Overview

Program Description:

At the center of cardiovascular surgery, we provide comprehensive care across the whole range of our specializations: cardiac surgeryand vascular surgery. We ensure 24-hour surgical service for all emergencies of the cardiovascular system, including traumas.

Yearly, we provide outpatient care to more than 4,000 patients and we carry out around 1,000 major surgeries. Half of these surgeries are cardiac procedures and half are vascular interventions. The number of such procedures increases each year.

Only with us you know your department and the mentoring team even before you apply. What does one of our mentors – Head of the Department Radovan- say about your placement schedule and patient cases to observe?

„This placement gives you an excellent opportunity to see how the week really looks for a person in my position. Apart from an everyday routine in the patient’s wards and morning rounds, you will also participate in common roentgen indication seminars and see vascular surgeries. If you are interested, you may stay for the afternoon and night shift. On Mondays I work in the outpatient department where I meet patients that have come in for their first vascular exams (concerning venous or arterial system) or meet with patients for post-surgical and other medical check-ups. On Wednesdays, I participate in endovascular interventions together with my colleague – an interventional radiologist - in an angiographic operation room. In the afternoon I have outpatient work again, but this time for children that suffer from inborn or acquired diseases of the vascular system and children after reconstructive procedures. On Thursdays and Fridays I usually conduct surgeries, for example to correct lower limb disorders. Apart from seeing the work of a vascular surgeon you will have the opportunity to study the problems of vascular system diseases.“

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Cardiovascular Surgery.
