The Philippine Association of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons, Inc. (PATACSI) regularly conducts Postgraduate Courses in April and December of each year to meet its prime objective of promoting and sharing of knowledge and experience in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery.  By doing so, members can keep abreast with the latest trends, innovations and practices in the field of TCVS. I t also provides a forum where colleagues (local and international) can exchange medical and surgical information that would greatly aid them in their place of practice.


The training institutions of PATACSI  take turn in holding regular scientific meetings to showcase different and interesting thoracic, cardiac and vascular cases, from diagnosis to management. These meetings provide the venue to thoroughly discuss the details of a case based on the experiences and expertise of various TCVS institutions.
