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.
BCIS Interventional Fellowships 2021
BCIS Interventional Fellowships offer well established high quality, high volume interventional training in a prominent international cardiac centre. The posts are funded for 12 months and have a work programme primarily focused on catheter laboratory activity. There are opportunities for participating in interventional research and both advanced coronary intervention and structural heart disease programmes. As well as offering advanced interventional training, they provide an excellent opportunity to live and work in another country and experience a different healthcare system.
These posts are highly competitive and are most suitable for individuals who already have a strong background in interventional training and academic research.
