eLearning, professional unity and accreditation among new ESC President’s top priorities

Fausto Pinto, who became President of the ESC today, says plans to strengthen the accreditation systems in cardiology, the ESC eLearning platform and the role of the Society in Brussels will be high on his agenda:  'Why should patients accept treatment by doctors unless they’ve the confidence in knowing they’ve achieved pre-defined levels of proficiency.'

Far-reaching programme of ESC Registries

Since its introduction in 2008 the ESC’s registry programme - known as the EURObservational Research Programme, or EORP - has grown from just two pilot surveys (both in heart failure) to a broad-ranging and far-reaching programme of 13 registries arranged within the categories of ‘General’, ‘Sentinel’, ‘Special’ and ‘Prevention’ (the last of which now includes both arms, hospital and primary care, of the latest round of the Euroaspire data collection and analysis).

A wealth of opportunities for young cardiologists

The ESC young community (under 36-year old) represents the ESC’s future. Founded in 2010 with the Cardiologists of Tomorrow, its number increases year on year. They are all embedded in different ESC Constituent Bodies. Currently eight ESC young groups are supporting a broad range of cardiology fields of expertise. In 2014, more than 500 young cardiologists benefited from free ESC Congress 2014 registration, thanks to Cardiologists of Tomorrow.

What in your view is the best innovation in cardiology in the last decade?

 "There is still a tendency for cardiologists to gravitate for work and research to the larger centres in Europe. Raising the profile of smaller centres is difficult - it takes time to increase an institution’s profile and there is inevitably clustering around the major centres of expertise. Modern communications though such as the internet and new media can help make cardiologists more aware of what lesser known centres have to offer. The ESC is working to improve integration and communication. They’re carrying out various initiatives which could increase mobility and stimulate interactions among cardiologists from different countries such as funding scholarships and grants."
