At the 2024 STS Annual Meeting, CTSNet Editor in Chief Joel Dunning and CTSNet senior editors set out to interview the most knowledgeable CT surgeons from around the world. Stay tuned for more interviews from the meeting.


CTSNet Global Editor Emily Farkas spoke with Dr. Ikenna Okereke, the cardiac surgery division chief at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, USA, about supporting US high school students who are interested in CT surgery as a way to disrupt disparities and encourage diversity in the field. Dr. Okereke started a program in 16 Detroit high schools to bring interested students into a surgical simulation lab and encourage them to pursue a career in medicine.
