EAPCI Fellows Course
European Interventional Cardiology Fellows Course
The European association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) hosted its European Interventional Cardiology Fellows Course at on Monday 15 and Tuesday morning 16 May. Thanks to the 161 active Fellows for joining this devoted Course!
Table of contents
The Fellows Course has been designed to aid the continued development of young interventional cardiologists, at the early phase of their training.
This Course provided participants with an overview on the theoretical background of interventional techniques, and dived into the details of everyday practice by reviewing relevant case presentations. It also offered a broad overview from very basics, such as the choice of catheters and guidewires, to more advanced interventional techniques, such as treatment of bifurcations or chronic total occlusions. A brief visit into the field of structural interventions was also part of this Course.
Accordingly, this Fellows’ oriented Course also allowed participants to exchange everyday experiences via peer-to-peer case presentations, supported by the commentary from experts in the field.
All topics were covered by the state-of-the-art lectures of renowned experts, which were open to questions from the participants. Review of cases and complications, in a preliminary session or integrated in the lectures or questions, offer examples of practical applications of the concepts discussed.
The EAPCI Fellows Course grants participants with the opportunities to meet the field’s experts, and to create their own networking experiences within the young community. Indeed, this interaction will hopefully establish links and long-term relationships helpful for personal development and a greatest integration of European professionals in Interventional Cardiology.
