Global Cardiothoracic Surgery Casablanca Case Series
The Center for Global Surgery collaborates with University Mohammed Vi des Sciences de la Sante in Casablanca, Morocco to hold a case series session every two months. The Global Cardiothoracic Surgery Casablanca Case Series is organized into a five-part curriculum where topics are thoughtfully chosen, including infectious pathology, rheumatic heart disease, cardiac tumors, etc. From these themes, faculty, fellows and residents from the two institutions choose a recent case that they dive further into. Each session includes four case scenarios; most recent cases have covered heart valve disease, heart transplantation, hypertension and more. These case studies offer a unique educational opportunity for both sides to engage in a conversation that previously had not been available. Faculty and learners get the opportunity to see different cases that are not common in their region and how they manage in the operating room. We are very proud of this successful partnership and conference led by Drs. Hicham Benyoussef, Todd K. Rosengart and Lauren Barron.
