BCIS Focus Group For Training Culture

16th March 2022

Dear BCIS Members

I am pleased to announce the establishment of a new BCIS Focus Group on Training Culture in association with the British Junior Cardiologists Association.

It is clear that there are important issues regarding the culture of training, bullying, expectations as to the nature of interactions etc.

This Focus Group will allow for an in depth review of the issues leading to the current state of affairs, and then aim to provide suggestions to the Society about how these can be addressed and resolved.  Emphasis will be given to looking at these issues from the perspective of both trainees and trainers, so that our outcomes can represent both groups of stakeholders.

The Group will meet for the first time before ACI 2022 and at that meeting will nominate an independent Chair as well as setting out the terms of reference.

I hope that you will support this extremely important initiative: we want to encourage enthusiastic and committed training in a comfortable and understanding environment for all concerned.

With best wishes

Prof. Nick Curzen  BM(Hons) PhD FRCP

President, British Cardiovascular Intervention Society
