The CVSA Council includes surgeons, anesthesiologists and scientists interested in cardiac, vascular, and thoracic interventions. Involved in basic science and clinical trials, the council seeks to increase awareness of important issues in cardiovascular surgery and anesthesia, disseminate new knowledge, and encourage use of optimal surgical procedures and anesthetic techniques.


The QCOR Council provides a forum for a multidisciplinary group of volunteers committed to making a substantial contribution to reducing the burden of heart disease and stroke through improving healthcare quality and patient outcomes. Members gain insight on how to provide effective, safe, timely, equitable, efficient, and patient-centered care.
