General Thoracic Surgical Club
Education, Camaraderie and Science; this is what we hope to achieve at our NYGTSC meetings. We strive for broad participation from all thoracic surgeons and thoracic surgical trainees in the tri-state area, and our meetings have been a phenomenal success!

Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know.
- Daniel J Boorstin


An evaluation for real camaraderie is whether or not we could be at liberty for our friends' success & loyal for their accidents.

Welcome to the website of the New York General Thoracic Surgical Club (NYGTSC)!

The NYGTSC is a group of like-minded thoracic surgeons in NYC and the surrounding areas who gather twice a year for an evening of education, camaraderie and scientific research. Our goal is to foster a spirit of collaboration and friendship between our members, with the common goal being to advance medical care for our patients. This is an inclusive group where officers are democratically elected by the membership, where new ideas can be freely discussed, and where we hope multi-institutional clinical and research collaborations can germinate and grow.

The strength of this organization rests in the enthusiasm and support of its members, and we are delighted with the success we have achieved so far!

Scientific Research

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research,
would it?
