European Interventional Cardiology Fellows Courses

Continuous 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.

 

Aim of the course

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.

Who should attend?

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.

What should I expect from these courses?

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 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.
