Professional Development

Continuing medical education is just one element of any thriving practitioner's professional development. SCAI has a range of resources to help its members with all aspects of building a successful career as an interventional cardiologist including: mentorship programs, help choosing a career path, grants and fellowships for early career interventionalists, and advice on establishing and running a successful practice, dealing with challenges in the workplace, and becoming a leader in the cath lab.

Early Career Research Grants

Whilst cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality in the US continues to rise, funding for clinical research has remained relatively stagnant. 

As a result, early career cardiovascular interventionalists interested in research have found it increasingly difficult to find funding for their work. 

In response SCAI is launching three Early Career Research Grants that will fund one year of research and support the career development of the next generation of academic interventional cardiologists.

The SCAI WIN CHIP Fellowship was one of the highlights of my academic training thus far. It allowed me a dedicated year to develop skills in complex coronary interventions with wonderful mentors and highly skilled and experienced operators.
