This Advanced Training Statement addresses the core competencies required of interventional cardiologists, including competencies related to coronary, peripheral vascular, and structural heart interventions. The competencies for coronary interventions in adults serve as the foundation for cardiologists who wish to pursue training in peripheral vascular or structural heart interventions. This statement identifies select competencies for interventional cardiologists who choose to focus their careers on peripheral vascular or structural heart interventions that some advanced trainees may acquire either during formal fellowship training or through subsequent training experiences. This document provides examples of appropriate measures for assessing competence in the context of training.
