OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
This course is designed to aid the continued development of medical doctors who have started or have recently completed a programme of training in interventional cardiology in the Core subjects of the syllabus.
Cardiology Fellows who have been accepted for training in Interventional Cardiology, are performing their period of training, or young cardiologists who have recently completed their training or wish to refresh their interventional training. To allow full interaction, a maximum number of 130 attendants will be allowed with mandatory confirmation of their training supervisor that they will be, are or have been engaged in a program of interventional training for at least 1 year.
All lectures are given by recognized experts drawn from the interventional faculty. They cover in depth all the aspects of the subject discussed, from the basics to the latest developments.
Lectures are open to questions from the participants. review of cases and complications, in a preliminary session or integrated in the lectures or questions, offer examples of practical applications of the concepts discussed. The breaks allow interaction with the Faculty and colleagues. This one-to-one interaction will hopefully establish links and long-term relationships helpful for personal development and a greatest integration of European professionals in Interventional Cardiology.
The EAPCI Fellows Course 2016 was held from 9 to 11 June at the European Heart House in Sophia Antipolis, France. The Course was promoted by EAPCI and organized by the EAPCI New Initiatives for Young Interventionalists (NIFYI) Committee chaired by Davide Capodanno (Italy) and co-chaired by Maria Radu (Denmark), with the important conception and design contribution of the NIFYI Education Task Force members Salvatore Brugaletta and Gabor Toth. This course was co-directed by Davide Capodanno, Michael Haude, Maria Radu and Stephan Windecker.90 fellows from all over the world have attended a 2 days and a half of state of the art lectures and case-based discussion featuring internationally renowned speakers, including Emanuele Barbato, Andreas Baumbach, Salvatore Brugaletta, Robert Byrne, Jean-Philippe Collet, Javier Escaned, Thierry Lefevre, Manel Sabate, Goran Stankovic, Holger Thiele, Gabor Toth and Marco Valgimigli.The EAPCI Fellows Course is designed to aid the continued development of medical doctors who have started or have recently completed a programme of training in interventional cardiology.The participants have been updated on standards of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), including material selection, indications for PCI, treatment of specific lesion subsets and interventional pharmacology.This year for the first time Interventional Cardiology Fellows Course offered a structured hands-on training. During the course, satellite workshops provided with insight and hands-on experience with a wide range of tools and devices in interventional cardiology.
Read below feedbacks and opinions of fellows who have attended the 2016 edition:
"Great meeting! I am extremely grateful for this experience and in attending the conference. I not only learned more about the field but shared experiences with colleagues and top scientists from all over the world." Anonymous
"Great course, fully educational and interactive! I highly recommend it to young cardiologists who want to follow a career in interventional cardiology!" Anonymous
"The EAPCI Interventional Fellows Course represents a unique educational experience, well focused on the needs of young interventionalists in training. All the most recent techniques are explained in details, from the basics up to the most advanced concepts. The interaction between colleagues and with experienced Faculty Members is in my opinion another great chance given by this course. I wish to thank the EAPCI Young committee for this opportunity and I will suggest it to all younger colleagues as a “mandatory step” of the interventional training program." Giampiero Vizzari
