International Fellowship programme in India

The International Fellowship programme is a new membership offer dedicated to ESC Affiliated Cardiac Societies based on the ESC Fellowship programme, the highly respected voice in the voluntary sector of Cardiology.

The International FESC programme started in 2013 and already counts 153 International Fellows of the ESC recognised during the first ESC CAD Fellowship Meeting held on 17th-18th January, 2014 in Mumbai, India.

Its main objective is to provide the ESC with a way of upholding and expanding the professional qualities of the Society and of integrating various national activities to a greater degree within the International scene.

The designation of the International Fellow title honours members who have made outstanding contributions in the field of Cardiology. This title is based on professional scientific or clinical merit and testifies one's commitment and achievement within the world of Cardiology.
