Training & Education Group

Welcome to the BCIS Training & Education Group page

Our core aims are wide and varied. We aim to provide high quality BCIS courses throughout the year aimed at the full range of BCIS members from trainee through to AHPs and established consultants. These established and high quality forums include BCIS basic coronary intervention, BCIS advanced coronary intervention, annual AHP meeting as well as EAPCI and SCAI fellows course. Beyond this the annual ACI trainee sessions have seen considerable evolution with the introduction of clinical case competition and presentation “Best of Young”.

The group is central to the support of the BCIS interventional fellowship programme now expanded to four annual fellowships hosted in Victoria (Vancouver Island BC), Toronto, Adelaide and Auckland.

The website acts as a central source of information for these activities and also provides a rich array of educational and presentation material with webcast of the month, the full ACI 2015 and 2016 conference webcasts, slide bank for both upload and download of members presentations (converted to PDF first).

Content is updated on a monthly basis and various calls for applications, speakers and conference opportunities will be made available in the news section.
