Active Membership

Thank you for your interest in joining GTSC! Surgeons (national or international) who have obtained specialty certification in thoracic surgery by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery or the Royal College of Surgeons, or other official certifying organization approved by the Executive Committee may apply for membership in the General Thoracic Surgical Club.

Applicants for Active Membership must be:

  • Board certification in thoracic or cardiothoracic surgery in your country
  • Have been in practice for a minimum of two years beyond the completion of formal training in thoracic surgery
  • In the year preceding application >50% of your practice must be general thoracic surgery
  • Send the Member Sponsor Form to two Active and/or Senior members of the club. This brief form replaces the need for a letter of recommendation. Without a completed form, GTSC cannot accept the application.
    • Or have letters of support from individuals familiar with your practice if you do not know an Active or Senior member

If elected to membership, the yearly membership dues are $395 USD. Payment is due at the time of application and are refunded if the application is denied.

Please contact with questions.
