Women in Innovations (WIN) | SCAI

The SCAI-WIN  mission is to foster professional development, education, collaboration, and research by and on behalf of women in interventional cardiology and their patients.

Throughout the year, SCAI-WIN participates in a variety of initiatives that support its mission. These initiatives include educational and professional development sessions at conferences, webinars, fellowship opportunities, and collaboration with other groups.

Member Highlight

The SCAI WIN CHIP Fellowship ... not only allowed me increased exposure and comfort with CTOs, but increased my skillsets with other facets of complex-PCI including mechanical circulatory support, atherectomy, and difficult access. It also allowed me time to pursue some research pertaining to the field and to begin to formulate talks in the area.

Radiation Safety in the Practice of Cardiology

Concern about radiation exposure is a known reason why women do not go into cardiology, we’re about to change that. To ensure all workers are protected from radiation, particularly pregnant Cardiologists, SCAI is pleased to endorse Women as One’s launch of “Radiation Safety in the Practice of Cardiology: What all Women Need to Know,” an interactive slide set aimed to educate all members of the care team on the basics of radiation safety, and the specific implications for those members who are pregnant while performing procedures in clinical environments which use radiation. The goal is to ensure workplaces are equipped with accurate, evidence-based information and to encourage policies and regulations which match the underlying data.
