Department and Faculty

The Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, performs more than 850 cardiac and thoracic cases each year with approximately 44 heart transplants, 38 lung transplants, and a dozen ventricular assist devices using state-of-the-art technology.

At Mayo Clinic, physicians collaborate to determine the most appropriate care for each patient. Cardiovascular surgeons work within a multidisciplinary team to care for adults with cardiovascular disease.


Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and fostering the expansion of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are recognized as leaders in their fields. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout the Cardiothoracic Surgery Transplant Fellowship.
