Welcome to the Congenital Heart Surgeons' Society
A Holiday Message from Your President
As we approach the end of 2017, I want to thank you for the privilege of having served as President of the Congenital Heart Surgeonsí Society (CHSS) for a little over a year now. It has been a busy and productive 2017 for the CHSS, including our very successful meeting at the lovely Loews Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois. The 2017 Meeting Program as overseen by Dr. Harold Burkhart, and was well-received. There were 25 oral presentations, 5 videos, and 10 posters, and 5 of the oral presentations were part of the new Sunday evening session "My Worst Nightmare Cases." Read More.

John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund
The Kirklin/Ashburn Fellowship Fund was established to support the CHSS Data Center Research Fellow. In 2008, CHSS changed the name of the John W. Kirklin Fellowship Endowment Fund to the John W Kirklin/David A. Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund. This change was made in recognition of Dr. David Ashburn, the very first Kirklin Fellow, who was tragically killed when his flight crashed on June 4, 2007 after procuring a donor organ for transplantation.
The CHSS Data Center, located at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, plays a crucial role in recording, analyzing and tracking the data of many patients with congenital heart disease. Moreover, the Research Fellow is critical to furthering the goals of both the CHSS and the Data Center while providing an outstanding research experience for a young trainee. In order to recruit the very best talent available, we must ensure that the John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Fund is fully supported.
