The University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery highlighted the news that two of its female cardiothoracic surgeons recently performed simultaneous transplants – a noteworthy distinction since only an estimated 8 percent of cardiothoracic surgeons in the United States are female. The article also focused on their journey to the field, with Dr. Simran Randhawa crediting the mentorship of Cherie P. Erkmen, MD, Professor of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery and Professor in the Center for Asian Health at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University and Director of the Thoracic Surgery Residency Program and Lung Cancer Screening Program at Temple University Hospital.
