The Society For Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain and Ireland (SCTS) was founded in 1934 and currently has two national representatives for junior and senior cardiothoracic trainees, representing approximately 140 national trainees. The Society organises training courses, an annual conference, outreach projects for medical students and doctors interested in cardiothoracic surgery and publishes unit-specific operative outcomes and guidance for surgeons and patients.
The National Trainee Committee for Cardiothoracic Surgery (NTCCTS) is the trainee committee of the SCTS (presided over by the trainee representatives) that acts to represent cardiothoracic trainees and work with SCTS committees to address issues in training. The NTCCTS also organises its annual trainer awards, trainee meeting and trainee dinner (held at the SCTS conference).
