Member Highlight

I am a member of SCAI because it is the only dedicated community focused on interventional cardiologists.

Even as everyone wears different hats as a general cardiologist, private practice or academic physician, or member of their institution, having an external community of people who experience the same challenges you do each day with practice, reimbursement, and administration is essential.

SCAI speaks on our behalf and only on our behalf, and has many more opportunities to participate and provide leadership compared with larger organizations.

Ultimately, though, it comes back to community and friendship, and SCAI comes as close to a brother/sisterhood as possible.
