Registrations for the match program begin in November. The department also offers a two-year Adult Combined Cardiothoracic and Critical Care (CTCC) Fellowship. If you are interested in this 2-year program, the application process is the same as for the CCM program.  In your personal statement, add that you are interested in the 2-year CTCC fellowship program.
