Industry Training Institutes

Education and training programmes for interventional cardiologists - where can you go?

As a young and fast growing association, promoting continuing education and training is at the heart of EAPCI’s objectives. Whether you are a recognised expert, mid-career specialist, student or young practitioner, you need to know where to look for further education. Ongoing research gives way to new procedures essential to the development of our speciality.

Acting as a portal, EAPCI wishes to document and inform interventional cardiologists of the various institutes with training and education programmes related to our speciality.

If you would like to find out more, read the EAPCI column by President Dr Wijns published in the November 2007 issue of EuroIntervention.

The training centres are guided by well known senior European specialists. Each centre applies virtual reality, focus groups and hands-on-training tools to assist with training in various specialised areas.

EBAC certified programmes      

Recognition of the high quality of educational programmes is witnessed by accreditation from the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC).
As a joint project of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the Cardiology Section of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS-CS), the role of EAPCI, an integral part of the ESC insures our part in this process and the legitimacy of our overall endeavour.
When choosing a course let the EBAC seal guide you.
