In brief: 7-9 year residency
Traditionally, after medical school, the training to become a cardiac surgeon involved 5-7 years of general surgery residency followed by 2-3 years of cardiothoracic surgery.
. These surgeons are board certified in general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery. Historically, many cardiac surgeons also performed vascular surgery but it has now become its own specialty and involves 5-7 years training.

In brief: A LONG TIME!!
According to my surgical colleagues, they do a full 6-7 year surgical residency, followed by a 2-3 year cardio-vascular surgery specially fellowship.
So about 8-10 years post medical school!
