We spoke to Professor Kyriakos Yiangou, President of the Cyprus Society of Cardiology 2018–2020, about what the EACVI membership means to him.

“As a Silver member, you gain free online access to European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging and can take advantage of a range of educational resources, online webinars, live talks and congress resources—all of these enhance

the possibility of gaining in-depth education and up-to-date knowledge. At EuroEcho-Imaging and EuroCMR congresses, Silver members can also make use of Members Lounges to get to know other colleagues and interact easily.” In addition, Silver members can apply for EACVI training, research and travel grants and receive discounts on EACVI courses, tutorials and certification exams.

“EACVI membership helps you to feel like part of a family.”

On the personal side, Prof. Yiangou continues, “Being part of a bigger group and having contact with colleagues with the same interests and same vision gives you the feeling that together we are stronger and we can take our Association further.

Prof. Yiangou described his experiences of being a member of the EACVI and also representing the Working Group of Echocardiography and Imaging within the Cyprus Society of Cardiology. “Although we are from a small country in terms of population and membership, we still have the strongest desire and the strongest potential to participate in the EACVI family. “Of course,” he explains, “knowledge and evolution is mainly produced by bigger countries and is followed by members from smaller countries, but we can also express our individual concerns and priorities and share our unique characteristics and the problems we face. We can contribute scientifically as well as by brainstorming. Being part of the EACVI family makes us much more interactive—we can give and take, inform and be informed in all aspects, not just in matters related to medicine, but in administrative and financial aspects that affect the association and its members.”
