The European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) has launched its first e-learning programme for interventional cardiology and offers an online education platform that implements the EAPCI curricula. This programme covers several learning modules, leading to a certificate of excellence in interventional cardiology training, and will help to harmonise education between various countries. As a member of the EAPCI, I got the opportunity to join this educational programme as one of the first trainees. During my interventional fellowship at Thoraxcentrum Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands, this learning modality turned out to be a very useful guide and reference to fulfill the current standards of education of the interventional cardiology subspecialty. My local programme directors of interventional cardiology, Prof. Clemens von Birgelen and Dr. Martin Stoel, stimulated me to make use of the platform and were able to online monitor and interact with my e-learning progression. As the first candidate who successfully completed the training programme in interventional cardiology, I can fully recommend the EAPCI learning program as an essential tool for interventional fellows around the globe to meet the highest standards of medical education.
