If you are interested in participating in our data collection process as a site investigator – please click on the link to fill out one of our secure, encrypted Site Investigator Applications. While we are strongly recruiting surgeons from areas of moderate to high altitude, we are encouraging interested surgeons from any location to consider participating.
As busy surgeons, many of you just don’t have the time to devote to full-time research, academic projects and scholarly writing. That doesn’t mean you aren’t interested in, and can not make a significant contribution to the literature surrounding topics in thoracic surgery. By signing up as a site investigator, you (or your delegates) will use our new electronic applications to upload and submit de-identified data about your patient populations and outcomes for use in our study. (It’s like the STS general thoracic database – but easier!)
In return, you will have made a significant and lasting contribution to the existing body of knowledge in your chosen specialty, and will receive due credit in all subsequent articles and publications based on these contributions.
