after a gs residency, you have to apply for one of the ridicuously competitive peds surgery fellowship (only 30 in any given year) and from there go do peds ct fellowships.

Incorrect. Pediatric Cardiac Surgery follows CTVS & not Pediatric Surgery Training. Depending upon your exposure during your fellowship, occassionally you may not even need the additional training to get privledges to do it if you join an academic division and get some additional mentoring in it

Plastic Surgery is both a fellowship and a residency but, most programs are becoming more like a residency than a fellowship.
well, there are talk about intergrated CT-surgery program like plastic residency (not fellowship). The plan is a 3-4 program. three years of g-surg, and four years of CT-surg. This will let you be CT-board eligible, and no longer g-surg board eligile. No program exist yet, but Hopkins use to have a 7 years straight track CT residency. That went out the door after the loophole for the 4 clinical years g-surg residency board eligibe was abolish.
