CTSNet's 7th Annual Resident Video Competition: Submit Now!

CTSNet is excited to announce that the Resident Video Competition deadline has been extended to January 10, 2022. Submit your video for a chance to win and be featured on the site with an interview.

The video above is a discussion with past CTSNet Resident Video Competition winners who share their experience and tips for this event. The competition is open to all cardiothoracic surgery residents, general surgery residents, and medical students. Qualifying videos will be published in the CTSNet Residents Section, given an Altmetric tracking badge, and featured in an edition of Pulse, the CTSNet weekly eNewsletter. The winning video will also be displayed prominently on the CTSNet homepage and the winning author will be recognized at a future CTSNet event. The deadline for submissions is extended to January 10, 2022. Surgical videos, interviews, roundtable discussions, and creative submissions relevant to residency and/or the cardiothoracic surgery specialty are all welcome.

Resident Video Competition Requirements:

  • A resident must be the first author on a video for it to be considered, although a resident does not need to be the primary surgeon in operative video submissions. To meet the CTSNet first authorship requirement, residents should have performed and/or edited AND videos must be narrated by resident.
  • Videos should not exceed 12 minutes in length.
  • One submission per resident.
  • All submissions for the Resident Video Competition must also adhere to CTSNet’s standard Submission Guidelines.
  • Applicants should use the CTSNet Content Submission Form to enter videos into the competition, checking the “Resident Video Competition” box on the form to ensure that the submission is considered for competition purposes.
