Washington University resident, Matthew Bott, MD, presented two abstracts at the 2014 STSA Annual Meeting. Matt described the STSA Annual Meeting as “an excellent forum for residents to disseminate their work. It is generally well-attended and discussions are very enlightening, yet amicable. The meeting is very academic and publication in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery makes submitting abstracts very worthwhile.” Matt went on to say, “The small group feel of the STSA meeting makes for a more relaxed atmosphere. This in turn, fosters energetic, yet light-hearted discussion.”
