Dear BCIS member,

Are you and your team enthusiastic about trainee education? Could you deliver one day of interactive informative education? Are you interested in the educational development of the trainee members of our Society? If so, we would like to invite you to submit an expression of interest to host the Trainees Summer Meeting in 2023.

Each year, the BCIS TEG (Teaching and Education Group) Working Group run a popular face to face training day for interventional fellows. Last year, Bournemouth very ably hosted this for us, thank you Peter and your team.

The programme for 2023 has not yet been developed, but previously worked best with a mixture of in-house and external faculty and has been hosted in a nearby hotel (although a hospital venue is an option) which is looked after by Millbrook Medical Conferences.

It is intended that the successful centre will join a ZOOM meeting with the TEG Working Group to agree a date, the content of the programme and their role in it.

 

Application

Application is by self-nomination along with a supporting statement from the centre. This should be no more than 500 words, and include the details of what you and your unit can bring to the TEG Working Group and its summer meeting. Centres will be judged by prior experience and effectiveness of delivery, range of subjects covered, and ease of delegates to get to venue.

Applicants are welcome to upload a suggested draft agenda, but this is optional.

If you are enthusiastic to take this on, please complete the form at the bottom of the page by Friday, 3 February 2023 at 5 PM, including a statement in support of your application.

BCIS Trainees Virtual Meeting 2022 — Call for Case Submissions

BCIS Trainees Virtual Meeting 2022 — Call for Case Submissions

24th November 2022

Call to all interventional trainees!

It is often said that we learn the most from our complications. Do you have a complication that taught you an important lesson, and are you willing to share this with other trainees? If the answer to this is yes, and you would value the opportunity to present at a national virtual meeting of your peers then look no further. We are currently looking for cases for presentation at the BCIS Coronary Interventional Trainees e-course, to be held on Monday 12th December 2022.

The case does not have to be something unusual, unique or spectacular, but it does have to be a case you were directly involved in and with a learning outcome you can share with others. All cases should follow the same format. This is a very interactive session so you should consider asking the audience for their input on the case at various points, i.e. “what would you do next/now?” A brief summary of the clinical background to the patient including indication for the proposed procedure.

The case then needs to be presented with appropriate angiographic images to demonstrate the procedure. It is important for you to get across your decision making process in how the complication was manged, and various options considered/discussed. The case need to conclude with what done in this specific case, and the outcome, with a summary of what the take home messages were from your personal perspective and how it would change your practice in the future.

All submissions should be submitted via the form below by the closing date of 5pm on Monday 5th December, 2022. The Training and Education Group (TEG) will then select the best cases for presentation at the meeting.

 

Open to BCIS Trainee members only.
