The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh would like to congratulate Arian Arjomandi Rad, the recipient of our 2020 Cardiothoracic Surgery Medical Student Elective Travel.

After returning from the elective in ICLAS, Ligurian High Specialty Clinical Institute(Italy) in July 2020, Arian shared his thoughts about the experience:

The great complexity, intricacy and potential for innovation which exists around cardiothoracic surgery was one my main motivators in undertaking the following elective. The elective supported me in my objective of becoming a future highly skilled surgeon and a leader in the field of cardiac surgery.

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh Cardiothoracic Elective Award broadened my understanding of cardiothoracic surgery and made me determined to pursue this unique specialty in my future. It allowed me to gain a deep insight into the potential for innovations in the field and motivated me into pursuing other opportunities to explores other aspects of this specialty such as Robotic and minimally invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery.
