Dr. Glenn Barnhart and the team at the Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute in Seattle are inviting 15 people to become “Heart Surgeons for a Day” on Feb. 5.

Participants will get the chance to examine a human heart, hear from Swedish cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, and participate in interactive demonstrations of surgical tools.

The public can apply to participate here. Participants must be 14 years or older and applications are due by Jan. 19 at 11:59 p.m. The winners will be selected at random.

Those that aren’t chosen can follow the event on Twitter via @Swedish and #SwedishDoc4Day.

The “Heart Surgeon for a Day” event is intended to inspire both the participants who attend and the individuals who join the conversation online to learn more about heart disease prevention and treatment.
