What does it mean for a young doctor to be a presenter?

Dr. Matteo Cameli, Cardiologist University of Siena, Italy and PhD fellow Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplantation, Umeå University, Sweden

“I must admit that I was very enthusiastic – and a little anxious too – when it became clear that I was going to present at Euroecho Congress this year. It made me feel proud at the same time, as it is very flattering to have been invited to give a presentation, considering my young age. It takes a lot of hard work, but in this association, I am not an exception at all. Young doctors have a voice within EACVI which I think is very important. From a personal perspective, as a member of Certification & Accreditation Committee, a member of the Web & Communication Committee and Leading Manager of LinkedIn EACVI Club 35 Account and have become EACVI Club 35 Ambassador for Italy, I can only agree that there is a lot of attention for us young ones. Apart from the experience of presenting and interacting at such an important congress, it also offers a great chance for me to create a link with other colleagues by meeting and networking with so many ­attendees. The very best experts in imaging are present and I hope to empower myself by talking to them and learning a lot from them as well. It’s a great chance for my career and I would definitely advise other young doctors to try and get involved in major congresses like this too. It will provide you with more point of reference in the future. Over the past years, I have been attending similar congresses and have witnessed other young physicians presenting. There has been a definite improvement as it becomes more and more common for young doctors to take part like this. Hopefully, other societies will apply this too; for instance, the National Association of Cardiology in Italy is now following the same pathway.”
