Micro-Fellowship Standards programme

New EAPCI fellowship programme in 2017

Thanks to a joint effort of the New Initiatives For Young Interventionalists Committee and the Fellowship Committee of the EAPCI, Martine Gilard, Chair of the EAPCI Fellowship Committee and Gabor G. Toth, Chair of the EAPCI New Initiatives for Young Interventionalists Committee, are pleased to announce a novel grant platform - launched after EuroPCR 2017 - called the Micro-Fellowship Standards programme. 

Objectives of the programme

The Micro-Fellowship Standards programme supplement the regular long-term Education and Training grants programme fellowships, offering a short (4 weeks) but intensive stay in one carefully selected centre of excellence in a given technology such as intracoronary imaging, fractional flow reserve, bifurcation PCI, CTO procedures, transcatheter aortic valve replacement, mitral valve interventions or left atrial appendage closure, etc.

Who should join?

The programme is dedicated specifically to young interventionists who are at the early stages of their learning curve in one of the targeted procedures.

What should I expect from this programme?

Its goal is to boost the candidates’ exposure to the selected procedure over a period of 4 weeks. Even if this will be observational, it will provide a good kick-start to the programme in their home institution.  This latter possibility is even supported – as an option – with a few days visit by a proctor, also covered by the grant. There is no need to add that the networking potential of this programme is massive.

Application process

  • Continuous (all year long).
  • Candidates and host centres applications will be managed directly by subscribers (industry partners) in line with the criteria defined in the EAPCI Micro-Fellowship Standards programme (provided to industry partners having subscribed to this programme). Please note that EAPCI will not manage the applications.
  • Applications of the candidates will be selected by subscribers and submitted to EAPCI for final checking and approval of the quality standards of the training, along with the description of the planned training programme.

This programme is subject to the industry support at national level: more information on the name and country of the subscribers will be provided in due course. Discussions are currently on-going between industry partners and EAPCI.
