National Coordinators, who are volunteers, play the vital role of deciding if trainees meet the requirements to enrol in the programme, and furthermore if the training hospital and local trainer meet the requirements to support their training.“The ESCeL programme has been designed in such a way that active participation is needed from the National Societies to appoint National Coordinators who will be responsible for running the scheme in their country,” explained Prof. Goncalves, leader of the ESC eLearning project and Chair of the EAPCI Training and Education Committee.Key attributes for National Coordinators, said Goncalves, include having had previous experience in education and training, and the organizational skills to respond to requests in a “timely manner”.So far, 22 National Coordinators have been appointed.The organisational structure is such that it is only after approval from a National Coordinator that trainees are permitted to enrol in the training programme inside ESCeL. To National Societies who have not yet joined up, Goncalves made the following request to appoint a National Coordinator.
Please join us and become part of this great team to build something new which will benefit our profession, and most importantly our patients. Without a national coordinator, young interventionalists wishing to sign up must wait.
For National Coordinators, he stressed, the work load is not onerous. All it takes it will take is a few minutes to check on the credentials of the trainee, trainer and training centre and then sign them up to the platform. The National Societies, he added, should find they reap the benefits. “It will give you a live overview of what’s really going on in your country at the level of training hospitals,” said Goncalves.
