The Stricto Sensu Post-Graduate Program in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery of the School of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (FMUSP) began its activities in 1989, with the purpose of promoting intellectual formation and the production of knowledge in research fields related to the surgical and interventional treatments of cardio-thoracic diseases. This program, whose headquarters are located at the Heart Institute of the Clinical Hospital of FMUSP, comprises a set of scheduled activities, which include and privilege teaching and research, always aiming to integrate knowledge.

In order to achieve these goals, the Graduate Program in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery receives as students professionals with medical degree and individuals with a degree in other related areas who are affiliated with or were sent by university and non-university institutions linked to the Health System or to research and teaching centers and who are interested in developing projects in their area of knowledge. At the end of the Course, after passing the disciplines, the general qualification test and the thesis defense, the student receives the PhD degree in Sciences by the FMUSP.
