EACVI Training Grants: Opportunities for quality training at world-leading centres

Would you like to dedicate 6 months to receive specialist training in an imaging technique? EACVI Training Grants are here to help you. The EACVI training programme offers financial support for a period up to 6 months to help young candidates to expand their skills in a high-standard clinical centre or university within an ESC Member country other than their own. EACVI Training Grant recipients receive €1,500 per month for their daily subsistence.

Doctor Özge Tok was awarded an EACVI Training Grant in 2018. She says, “As a cardiac imaging specialist, I was trained in echocardiography, 3D echocardiography and interventional echocardiography and I recently learned cardiac computed tomography. As I am interested in multimodality imaging, I wanted to train also in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, but I did not have the funds or local facilities to do this. My HIT friends encouraged me to apply for an EACVI Training Grant. This is a prestigious and competitive grant and I was very happy when I found out I had won it. I am looking forward to spending 6 months at the Bristol Heart Institute, UK—this is a high-volume centre where I will be given detailed training.” She encourages others to apply: “If you are thinking about applying for an EACVI Training Grant, ask previous recipients like myself about the process. There are a lot of opportunities within the EACVI and people should be aware of them and encouraged to make the most of these chances.”

Applications for 2020 EACVI Research and Training Grants open on 31 March 2019. Find out more at
