ESTS-AME Prize column
Since 2015, AME and the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) has set up the ESTS-AME Prize to recognize the best performance by a trainee member in the postgraduate course Master’s Cup competition at the annual European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery. The junior (trainee) member that has given the best overall performance in the PGC will win an all-expenses-paid attachment to a leading thoracic surgery unit in China. The prize comes courtesy of AME Publishing Company. Here Journal of Thoracic Disease launches the ESTS-AME Prize column to share the oberservationship experiences and perspectives between East and West.
