This month, tens of thousands of medical students are graduating and joining the professional medical workforce. What advice do you have for the budding cardiothoracic surgeons who will soon be taking on the very operations that lead to post-operative AF? For the future anesthesiologists who will take care of cardiac patients post-operatively in the ICU? For the rising cardiologists who will follow surgical patients throughout their lives? For the soon-to-be researchers who will inform the way we treat these patients everyday for the rest of our lives? How should the doctors of tomorrow be thinking about cardiac surgery ?
