Micro-Fellowship Standards programme

New EAPCI fellowship programme announced for 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 to be launched in 2017, called the Micro-Fellowship Standards programme. 

Objectives of the programme

The Micro-Fellowship Standards programme will supplement the regular long-term fellowships, offering a short but intensive stay in one of the carefully selected centres 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 a few weeks. Even if this will be mainly 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.


Rules and regulations and opening of the applications will be will be available at a later stage on our website.
