Carolyn Dubeau, MD

I feel incredibly fortunate to be training in a field that integrates my love of physiology with the intricacies of operating, and remains at the forefront of education. Today in CT surgery we are designing and refining new training paradigms, we are supporting men and women with diverse backgrounds and goals in their pursuit of training, and we continue to uphold the studied traditions of those who have practiced before us. It’s an honor to train in this field!

Dr. Dubeau is a Southern California native, growing up in Ladera Ranch, CA, where she developed a love for the outdoors and warm weather. She has traveled across the U.S. and back in pursuit of her education since 2012, earning her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame IN, and her Medical Degree at the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, Quinnipiac University in North Haven, CT.  Since her early education, she has been inspired by incredible women teachers, and desires to pursue education in her career. She is interested in cardiac surgery, educational design and research, and creating new platforms for advancing mentorship and guidance in medicine. Dr. Dubeau designed, recorded, and published the podcast “Essential Wisdom: Inspiring Future Female Physicians”, to engage and inform the next generation of women in medicine. In her spare time, Dr. Dubeau enjoys running, cycling, and hiking and loves that these activities allow her to explore new areas in Texas!


As highlighted in her nomination by  Dr. Lauren Kane:

I was lucky to be paired with Dr. Dubeau for the WTS STS Scholarship and we have remained connected since that time.  She is so fun, kind, thoughtful, smart, skilled and innovative.  She ran a podcast “Essential Wisdom, Inspiring Future Female Physicians” as a medical student.  She is in her 2nd year I6 CT program, excelling and looking forward to getting more focused in CT surgery.  If you don’t know her, you’ll want to moving forward.  I personally can’t wait to see all she achieves in years to come.”
