SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellowship

The SCAI Women in Innovations (WIN) fellowship opportunity is offered to interventional cardiology (IC) fellows or practicing interventional cardiologists interested in pursuing an additional year of advanced training beyond traditional IC fellowships, focusing on complex and high-risk interventional procedures (CHIP) and percutaneous acute mechanical circulatory support training in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

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 2023-24 academic year.

Eligibility

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
  • A US citizen or permanent green card holder 

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 2023-June 2024. 

Requirements

Applications have now closed. 

The successful applicant will be notified by early October 2022 and must sign the paperwork with their selected institution by November 15, 2022. If unable to do so, the fellowship will be re-awarded to an alternative candidate SCAI will notify on November 16, 2022. 
 
The formal announcement of the 2023-24 SCAI-WIN CHIP Fellow will take place at SCAI Scientific Sessions 2023.
