Incorporating research into thoracic surgery practice.
The incorporation of research into a career in thoracic surgery is a complex process. Ideally, the preparation for a career in academic thoracic surgery begins with a research fellowship during training. In the academic setting, a research portfolio might include clinical research, translational research, or basic research. Using strategies for developing collaboration, thoracic surgeons in community-based programs may also be successful clinical investigators. In addition to the rigors of conducting research, strategies for reserving protected time and obtaining grant support must be considered to be successful in academic surgery.
