Korte et al. studied the results of a surgical exposure and assessment program for cardiac surgery residents and fellows. The program constitutes simulator training, self-organized trainings, and instructed workshops, and was evaluated within students, residents, and fellows. This concept could facilitate structured learning success and evaluation in the training for cardiac surgery.
