Why this programme?
Approximately 20% of EAPCI members are below 35 years old.
As a result of the change of presidency in September 2011, Dr Jean Fajadet, EAPCI President, decided to appoint a new Committee called “New Initiatives for Young Interventionalists” (NIFYI) whose role is to promote the Association among the young community and develop services dedicated for the new generation.
This committee was created in 2011 under the presidency of Jean Fajadet. Many initiatives have been already put in place to address the unmet needs of the young generation of interventional cardiologists, including CathGo (the search engine for training opportunities in Europe), the development of specific contents for EuroPCR and PCR Seminars, and the creation of the EAPCI European Fellows Course. Along this line, the 2014-2016 Committee will continue to capture expectations and develop new initiatives around three pillars:
- Community and networking
- Research and education in interventional cardiology
- Career orientation

Call for suggestions
In contrast with the traditional top-down model, bottom-up flow of information from young interventionalists aims to be a resource for the whole interventional community.
