Because Dr. Kouchoukos feels so passionately about research and training the next generation, he established The Nicholas T. Kouchoukos, MD, Endowed Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery at The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital in 2018.

“We need to train cardiothoracic surgeons who are both good surgeons and good clinical investigators,” Dr. Kouchoukos says. “It’s critical to have people in the field who are innovative, continue to push the limits, and make advances that enhance patient care.”
