Selected individuals will serve as regional consultants/advisors of the ICHF. Their function is to serve as sources of information, guidance, and advice in the regions they serve or represent. Insight into political, economic, social, cultural, demographic, and medical issues are vital to an understanding of the region. Information and knowledge regarding cardiothoracic services and surgery in that region provides a valuable framework from which to design and implement future strategic and tactical efforts. Since no international cardiothoracic surgical database exists regarding number of programs, CT surgeons, and annual surgical caseloads, cooperation between the regional consultants/advisors, corporate, and cardiothoracic surgical societies may provide vital future information.
