Joint General Surgery/Thoracic Surgery (4+3) Pathway

The Review Committee for Thoracic Surgery will consider proposals for the Joint General Surgery/Thoracic Surgery (4+3) Pathway, a seven-year education and training pathway leading to eligibility for certification in both general surgery and thoracic surgery. Proposals for a 4+3 pathway require approval by the Review Committees for Surgery and Thoracic Surgery before implementation.

Direct questions to Review Committee staff members, whose contact information is found on the Overview tab of the Thoracic Surgery section of the ACGME website.
