INDIA – International Fellowship programme

The International Fellowship programme began in 2014. It is a joint initiative between the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the Cardiovascular Society of India (CVS of I) which is a respected association of cardiovascular professionals and organiser of a leading cardiovascular conference in India.

It's main objective is to provide the ESC with a way of upholding and expanding the professional qualities of the Society and of integrating various national activities to a greater degree within the International scene.

The designation of the International Fellow title honours Indian members who have made outstanding contributions in the field of Cardiology. This title is based on professional scientific or clinical merit and testifies one's commitment and achievement within the world of Cardiology.

The CVS of India jointly organises with the European Society of Cardiology the yearly ESC Cardiovascular Association of Diabetes (CAD) International Fellowship Meeting dedicated to the newly elected International Fellows. The CAD Meeting is a scientific event open to all International Fellows of India where they also receive a diploma recognizing this important achievement.

There are 2 categories: Associate International Fellows and International Fellows depending on different  criteria for both.
