The CSCS founded the Canadian Women in Cardiac Surgery working group in October 2021. This important initiative seeks to provide a forum that supports female medical students and residents in the cardiac surgery community through education, mentorship, sponsorship, and scholarship. This initiative is being led by Dr. Lynn Fedoruk.

Our inaugural women in cardiac surgery event was held at the 2022 CSCS Spring Meeting with keynote speaker Dr. Lynda Mickleborough, the first female cardiac surgeon trained in Canada.
