Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
"We think the programme is a brilliant idea and would benefit all our trainees. Having the ability to assess both their practical experience and theoretical knowledge on the same platform is especially important in interventional cardiology" said Dr Vasco Gama Ribeiro, the President of the sub-specialty of interventional cardiology inside the Portuguese Medical Association
While enroling in the ESCeL programme will not be obligatory in Portugal it will be taken “into consideration” when trainees are accessed in their final examination to become an interventional cardiologist."We will definitely look favourably upon successful completion of the programme and ultimately hope that it will become a national requirement to practice interventional cardiology in Portugal" said Gama Ribeiro.
The advantage of the platform is that it will for the first time provide the National Society with a really good overview of where training currently stands in Portugal said Dr Vasco Gama Ribeiro.
It will give instant feedback showing us where improvements in training can be made. It also delivers the exciting possibility of creating a network to discuss the important issues and share the most challenging clinical cases.
It must be clear that there is no intention to take the place or minimize the role of National Cardiac Societies in the training process. The goal is simply to help different countries by providing a friendly platform with tools and services that may reduce the costs to National Cardiac Societies and may better harmonize training across Europe said Prof Martine Gilard, Co-Chair of EAPCI Training and Education Committee.
A high level textbook, the PCR-EAPCI Textbook, was edited with the help of leading international specialists and containing up-to-date references and links to e-learning (clinical cases and videos) is used as the main educational backbone of the platform. An interactive e-log book will also help trainers and trainees to verify more easily the progression of training. It will help National Cardiac Societies to identify centres with difficulties in this process in order to solve the problems on time.
Already trainees have been very enthusiastic about the initiative. “What they really seem to like is the idea that they will have access to the best possible training and that it will facilitate their ability to practice cardiology in the wider Europe” said Gama Ribeiro
I think ESCeL really addresses the unmet need of having a structured curriculum for young interventionalists with key benefits including the availability of up to date educational content. When you’re busy it’s great to get all the material text, videos and pdfs in one place. I found the platform enjoyable and user friendly to navigate.
