Ok, got it
Everything you've always wanted to know about the EACVI Grants programme, but were afraid to ask!
Candidates should submit their applications in advance, preferably by early June, so that they may be advised of any missing elements in time to be able to contact those concerned.
Applications will not be accepted after the closing date.
Applications that are incomplete will not be accepted.
Candidates to clinical training grants in the UK will need to be registered with the GMC (General Medical Council). https://www.gmc-uk.org/
Registration to the GMC implies passing an English test (either IELTS or OET with a min score set by the GMC), officially translate the medical training document in English, submit everything to the GMC and then book and attend an interview (proforma) in person at the GMC (Manchester or London). The latter can happen either before (preferably) or at the beginning of the fellowship.
No passing the English exam with the required score implies having to take the exam multiple times until the required score is achieved. So it is important that the candidate prepares and takes the English exam ASAP not to delay the beginning of the fellowship. In the absence of GMC registration the candidate can only attend as an observer which means he/she cannot get in touch with the patients or any sort of patients data or patients' identifiable information.
Registration to the GMC is mandatory for training grants and is recommended for research grants in which the project involves contact with patients (e.g. interviews, clinical examinations, imaging studies, other tests etc) performed directly by the research fellow.
Yes. The EACVI will not put in contact candidates and institutions, you need to contact them directly.
If you don't know where to do your training, discover our directory of European labs and their training or research opportunities in the field of non-invasive Cardiovascular Imaging. Nota Bene: you may also select a center which is not on this list.
