Chairman and Program Director
Associate Program Director
A friendly and collegial atmosphere is enjoyed by our team. Faculty are readily available to trainees for teaching and discussion, providing substantial opportunities for one-on-one mentoring. Two of our core faculty members are graduates of our thoracic surgery training program.
When I began to practice as an adult cardiac surgeon, I felt that my training at Loma Linda prepared me for the full spectrum of adult cardiac surgery, whether it be a low-risk revascularization or valve or a high-risk redo transplant or device. The autonomy in the operating room and in the ICU is superb. This factor alone would make me choose the Loma Linda program again. I am proud and honored to be part of its legacy.
