THICS 2011 Pinning Ceremony
On May 5, 2011, the Texas Heart Institute Cardiac Society joined together to welcome new members in a pinning ceremony.

The Texas Heart Institute Cardiac Society was founded in 1989 to provide an avenue for exchange of ideas relating to the clinical and research activities among the present and former Cardiology fellows, trainees, and teaching staff of the Texas Heart Institute. The society also offers social activities for its members.

Membership is by invitation from the society's Board of Directors. Membership consists of present and former cardiology fellows, faculty and teaching staff of the Texas Heart Institute.

At the ceremony, Dr. Stephen May was named the Texas Heart Institute's Tauber Outstanding Fellow for the 2010-11 academic year. He was chosen from among the class of third-year fellows by the THI teaching faculty, and is shown receiving the award from Dr. Edward K. Massin, Director of THI's Cardiopulmonary Transplant Division.

Stephen has completed postgraduate training at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital. He served as Chief Medicine Resident at Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. May will continue his training by doing an Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at THI at St. Luke's in the coming academic year.
