Women in Cardiology

The Women in Cardiology Focus Group was created in 2020 to look in detail at novel ways in which BCIS can:

  • Attract women into our subspecialty
  • Support female trainees who have chosen Interventional Cardiology
  • Support existing female Interventional Cardiology consultants
  • Ensure that the appropriate representation of women in BCIS activities is transparently fair
  • Ensure that women in Interventional Cardiology are highly visible to medical students and trainees

The group has been divided into four sub-groups to focus on specific demographics within Interventional Cardiology, these are research, medical students and core trainees, registrars and finally, consultants. Each subgroup has devised a plan of action to meet the aims of the group within their sub-groups demographic. More details of the group’s findings and achievements will be available soon.
