BCIS International Fellowships: a collaboration with industry
BCIS work closely with the medical device industry to promote and develop a programme of international interventional and structural interventional training posts. The initiative to set up these posts came from individual medical device companies, and reflects their commitment to funding educational initiatives.
BCIS recognises the value and success of these programmes, and have offered their endorsement to support the continued development of these very successful posts.
