The Canisius PA Program is proud to announce that Mahmoud Farhat, from the Class of 2023, was accepted into a highly competitive fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital through University of Michigan. He is the only fellow selected out of a total of 8-10 people taken each year in this specialty across the country.

This hospital has been voted among the top 50 in the country for cardiac surgery and Newsweek lists it among the top 100 in the world.

Upon completion of the fellowship, Farhat will have an in-depth understanding of the various sub-specialties within cardiothoracic surgery and be side-by-side with the surgeons in the operating room.

This is a source of real pride for the PA program and the university, and representative of the hard work and sacrifices of Mahmoud over the past two-plus years.
