With recent advances in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) technology and techniques, there is a critical need for interventional cardiology specialists dedicated to offering minimally invasive percutaneous solutions to patients with complex coronary anatomy, severe co-morbidities, and poor hemodynamics.

SCAI Women in Innovations (SCAI-WIN) is offering a Complex and High-risk Coronary Intervention (CHIP) Fellowship Grant for the 2024–25 academic year.


The SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellowship is open 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 mechanical circulatory support (MCS) training in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
Applicants must: 

  • Be in or have completed an interventional cardiology fellowship within the past five years.
  • Board eligible or certified for interventional cardiology.
  • Have employment authorization to work in the US at the start of the Fellowship July 1, 2024.

The successful recipient may apply this fellowship fund to a CHIP interventional training program with a cardiac catheterization laboratory treating over 250 complex coronary cases per year with access to the following advanced procedures and technology:

  • Chronic total occlusion (CTO) procedures
  • Calcific disease with access to atherectomy, including rotational atherectomy
  • Complex imaging and physiology (IVUS, OCT, FFR,resting indices)
  • Percutaneous MCS in the cardiac catheterization laboratory 

The $115,000 funding SCAI will transfer to the training institution must apply to a 12-month fellowship running July 2024June 2025. 


The SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellowship running July 2024-June 2025 has been awarded. 

The formal announcement of the 2024–25 SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellow will take place at SCAI Scientific Sessions 2024. 


SCAI gratefully acknowledges Abiomed (founding supporter), Boston Scientific, Medtronic, and Shockwave as supporters of the SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellowship.
