STSA Membership Application Deadline Extended Until September 24

Help Recruit New STSA Members!

STSA is currently accepting applications for Active, Associate, Candidate and Pre-Candidate Membership. The application deadline, previously scheduled for Sunday, September 15, is extended until Tuesday, September 24. 

Please take a few moments to encourage your partners, colleagues, and mentees to apply. If you are a Active or Senior member, offer to act as a member sponsor and write a letter of support. Your encouragement will be an important incentive to attract new members to our Association.

  • Active Membership is available for Board-certified cardiothoracic surgeons who currently practice or have previously practiced in the Southern region for at least one consecutive year, have completed a thoracic surgery or general surgery residency program, or have completed a thoracic or cardiovascular research or clinical fellowship for at least one consecutive year in the Southern region.
  • Associate Membership is available for interdisciplinary care professionals working on a cardiothoracic surgery team in the Southern region.
  • Candidate Membership is available for cardiothoracic surgery residents training at an institution in the Southern region.
