CTSNet is a not-for-profit corporation that depends upon corporate partners to help us extend and expand our capabilities and mission as the leading portal of educational tools and resources in the cardiothoracic specialty.
With just under 7 million page views and almost 1,000,000 sessions per month, CTSNet is one of the most highly trafficked professional medical sites on the Internet today. Our community of more than 33,000 medical professionals and thousands of other visitors come to us because of our commitment to providing the most innovative educational services, the most effective professional development tools, and the most reliable, up‐to‐date information available online for the cardiothoracic surgical community.
CTSNet depends upon the financial support of sponsors to maintain the community and to foster the development of new innovations. And we take our commitment to industry seriously by providing participating industry sponsors with the opportunity to have substantial input into the direction of CTSNet.
Cardiothoracic surgery is unique among medical specialties in having a single Web site that represents all the major professional societies around the world. This aspect of CTSNet ensures the most efficient use of your sponsorship dollars by delivering the highest quality educational content to a comprehensive, global online audience.
CTSNet Sponsors typically support a particular Web‐based educational application or professional service available through CTSNet. Also, there may be an existing section or a new section that CTSNet and the sponsor jointly feel would be a valuable addition to the ever‐expanding repository of educational material that CTSNet delivers to its community. Sponsorship can also be non‐directed.
Based upon total amount of support (including the sponsorship of particular sections), Sponsors are recognized at three levels:
Founding Sponsorship is designed for companies wishing to develop a major presence through widespread participation in CTSNet and to share in the development of CTSNet as it shapes the way surgeons and industry interact in the Internet era. Founding Sponsors sit on the CTSNet Industry Round Table, which holds yearly strategy meetings with CTSNet Senior Executives to identify opportunities for industry involvement in CTSNet. Founding Sponsors also have the right of “first acceptance” for joint or exclusive sponsorship of new services and tools on CTSNet.
Sustaining Sponsorship is ideal for companies wishing to participate in CTSNet, but without needing the in‐depth features of Founding Sponsorship.
Contributing Sponsorship provides an affordable means of participating in CTSNet and still being recognized as a sponsor.
Your company may also participate in the CTSNet Community through the Industry Forum, where you can help surgeons track advances in your products and services. Use the self-service tools in the Industry Forum to convey product specifications, basic science or physiology related to your products, tips and tricks, links to related articles, and other educational materials.
A fast, effective, and easy way to communicate specific and timely information regarding new products and services is through advertising on CTSNet. CTSNet can assist you in determining which advertising locations will most effectively target your message to the most appropriate audience on CTSNet.
