Women in Cardiothoracic Surgery


We continue to move ahead with our Equality and Diversity programme and engagement of the membership.  With this in mind, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Karen Booth as the first co-chair of the SCTS Women in Cardiothoracic Surgery Working Group.  She will be working with Narain Moorjani (SCTS Honorary Secretary) to help foster an environment that supports women in cardiothoracic surgery through education, mentorship, sponsorship and scholarship.

We are sure she will use her enthusiasm and determination to deliver this part of our programme and would be grateful if you could give her all your support moving forward.
