EACVI Heart Imagers of Tomorrow (HIT) Ambassadors

Countries with an EACVI HIT Ambassador


The role of an EACVI HIT ambassador is to create and expand the community of young doctors in the field of Cardiovascular Imaging by sharing  the interests and needs of their national peers within the EACVI HIT committee.

Their active involvement in the EACVI HIT educational projects, through close collaboration with National Societies/Working Groups, is key to growing the young community and sharing ideas.

Make the voice of your country heard by and spread the EACVI HIT word. Your country is not represented? We need ambassadors in each country to represent each of the imaging modalities and to be the main point of contact between the young doctors locally and the EACVI HIT committee. You can make a difference!
