Why become an ESC Fellow?

ESC Fellow: A Symbol of Excellence                     

The ESC Fellowship has become a highly respected voice in the voluntary sector of Cardiology. Fellows are distinguished cardiologists who have the possibility to belong to and support a prestigious community, and represent its activities. This peer group of 4 300 cardiologists has access to a high quality of worldwide networking. 

Main purpose of the Fellowship of the ESC

Fellowship of the ESC was created in 1988.
Its main objective is to provide the ESC with a way of upholding and expanding the professional qualities of our Society and of integrating various national activities to a greater degree within the European scene.

A Fellow is a cardiologist considered to be a person who has had a number of years of experience in the field and who has distinguished himself or herself individually in clinical, educational, investigational, organisational or professional aspects of Cardiology.


The designation of the FESC title honors ESC members who have made outstanding contributions in the field of Cardiology.

A merit of attainments

This title is based on professional scientific merit and testifies one's commitment and achievement within the world of Cardiology.
