In the U-40 column, we conducted a questionnaire survey of the U-40 generation on the theme of the specialist system for cardiovascular surgery and reported on the present condition and problems in obtaining certification. With the introduction of a new system, off the job training and participatory training using extracorporeal circulation techniques were newly mandated. In this article, we report the results and discussion of the questionnaire survey regarding the present condition of extracorporeal circulation training for the U-40 generation and the pros and cons of training programs.
