Description
The International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS) was formed in 1997 to enhance, promote and support research and education in, and related to, the field of minimally invasive cardiac surgery. In 2004 the Society expanded its scope and mission to include research and education in minimally invasive thoracic surgery. ISMICS is helping shape the future of less invasive cardiac and thoracic surgery on a global basis. The mission of the Society is to identify innovative cardiothoracic techniques and technologies that will minimize risk to patients and improve recovery times, then educate surgeons in the safe use of these techniques and technologies.

Program directors and fellows of cardiac and thoracic training programs are expressly invited to attend to gain exposure to the latest ideas and hear the research supporting or negating various techniques and approaches.

Business success — you may think it’s all about the bottom line, but savvy CEOs like those at Apple, Starbucks and IKEA know otherwise. Although profits play a big role, it’s also important for companies to be socially responsible by considering their impact on the environment, their local economy and their customers. One way that companies can practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) is by incorporating it into company events.
