ESC training grants

The European Society of Cardiology offers grants to help young professionals in the field of cardiology access quality training activities throughout Europe. ESC Training Grants award young cardiologists (aged < 36 years) who wish to update their clinical training with modern cardiological methods, especially when it is impossible to learn particular techniques in their own country.

Request for application here

For more information:

Any citizen or permanent resident of a country, which is a regular ESC or ESC Affiliated member can apply : graduates should have completed the major part of their cardiology training or have an equivalent academic grade. 

Regarding the Training programme, proposals may be submitted for specialised training or further training in the subject relevant to a particular clinical interest.

Candidates are advised to seek out a centre in another country within Europe which not only offers good training opportunities but which is also appropriate for the particular field in which they wish to train.

ESC Training Grants may be held for any period from 3 months to 1 year: the recommended training period is 6 months. For invasive/ interventional techniques a 12-month period is encouraged.
