Amy Cheney, MD, an interventional cardiology fellow at the University of Washington, was selected as the recipient of the SCAI-Women in Innovations (SCAI-WIN) Complex and High-Risk Interventional Procedures (CHIP) Fellowship.
The $90,000 fellowship opportunity was made possible by support from Abiomed (founding supporter) and Boston Scientific and was offered to interventional cardiology fellows or practicing interventional cardiologists interested in pursuing an additional year of advanced training (beyond traditional interventional cardiology fellowships) focusing on CHIP and percutaneous acute mechanical circulatory support training in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
Dr. Cheney is currently an interventional cardiology fellow at the University of Washington. She completed her general cardiology fellowship also at the University of Washington and her residency at the University of California, Davis. She has a medical degree from the University of Washington and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Whitman College.
“I am extremely honored and humbled to be the recipient of this year’s SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellowship. I am grateful to the SCAI-WIN committee, to Abiomed and Boston Scientific, and to my incredible mentors at the University of Washington for their support, enthusiasm, and commitment to my education and career,” said Dr. Cheney. “I am eager to grow in my skills as a coronary operator during this exceptionally exciting time in interventional cardiology. There is an ever-growing population of patients in need of complex coronary intervention, and I look forward to providing improved access to care for these patients. I am also committed to promoting the essential mission of SCAI WIN—to inspire future generations of outstanding female interventionalists to join this field.”
