At the end of the training programme...

  • Pending that the relevant number of points have been obtained (120 in total), trainees will be awarded with a certificate of excellence in training in interventional cardiology. This is not a diploma and has no legal value nor does it give the authorisation to practice interventional cardiology which remains the responsibility of the countries.
  • For the time being, EAPCI does not envisage having a summative assessment (i.e. an exam) but only formative assessment (i.e self assessment of knowledge acquisition).
  • ESC eLearning programme is a process of certification and not accreditation.
