N1 - Funding Information: The authors wish to acknowledge the important role of the Johns Hopkins University Premedical Advisory Office in selecting each year the most qualified undergraduate students for our Cardiothoracic Intersession Program. Dr Ronald Fishbein (Assistant Dean of Pre-Professional Programs at Johns Hopkins University) was instrumental in 2001 in helping us establish this rotation and in the selection of students in 2002 and 2003. Dr Jean Kan, currently in the Premedical Advisory Office, was responsible for overseeing the selection of our 2004 and 2005 students. Dr Artin Shoukas, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, has also been involved from the beginning of this program in the selection of the most qualified undergraduate students. We also appreciate the recommendation of Dr Walter Merrill, Editor of the New Horizons in Cardiothoracic Surgery Section of CTSNet, that we summarize the results of these two programs for publication in this journal. These student programs have been supported by a variety of funding sources from within the Johns Hopkins University and the School of Medicine. Additional support was received from the Godfrey Rockefeller, Robert Cinqueqrana and Robert Waldrop Gift Funds. Nishant Patel was supported by an Alpha Omega Alpha Carolyn Kuckein Student Research Fellowship.
