Fellows Interventional Cardiology Course

SCAI's Fellows Courses teach future generations of interventional cardiologists the knowledge and skills they need for post-fellowship practice.

In 2019 this course brought together 325 fellows from 27 countries to learn from an internationally recognized faculty, and now nearly 25 hours of recorded education from this meeting is available to all SCAI members online for the first time.
