Abstract: The new academic cycle in July is associated with the commencement of postgraduate medical education. Although this is presumed to be associated with poor patient outcomes, supportive evidence is limited for Cardiac surgery patients. We sought to determine if the new academic cycle had a direct bearing on outcomes of patients undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.
