It provides a cardiology service for diverse areas: from urban Adelaide to rural South Australia and the Northern Territory. This leads to a large caseload of both acute and elective cases (including primary PCI, rotablation, IVUS, pressure wire assessment and chronic total occlusions). Over 90% of cases are performed via the radial route. The fellow can expect to complete in excess of 500 PCI cases. Flinders Medical Centre has a well established TAVI and structural heart disease programme (PFO/ASD closure/ Mitraclip) that the fellow will be actively involved with. Multiple interventional research opportunities are available. The interventional fellow will be encouraged to develop a research project leading to presentation and publication. Attendance at regional and national meetings is encouraged. More Information Adelaide Notes from Recent Fellow Application Process Introduction

Notes from recent fellow This programme operates with the full support and endorsement of Notes from Dr Sheraz Nazir during his fellowship post in The BCIS interventional fellowship in Adelaide (South Australia) is undertaken at Flinders Medical Centre under the supervision of Dr Julian Vaile and Professor Derek Chew. This provides the selected fellow from the UK with a unique opportunity to enhance their skills in all aspects of Interventional Cardiology. There is a friendly and supportive environment for the Fellow to develop their interventional technique, practice evidence-based decision making and become confident as independent operators. There are three interventional cardiac catheter labs providing high volume PCI experience under the supervision of six interventional cardiologists. This includes the use of pressure wire assessment of fractional flow reserve, intravascular imaging (and complex interventions such as left main, bifurcation, CTO and rotational atherectomy procedures). The Fellow can expect to undertake 400-500 PCI procedures (predominantly via radial artery access) during the 12-month tenure. There is a busy structural programme (PFO and ASD closure, left atrial appendage occlusion, balloon mitral valvuloplasty and TAVI). The Fellow will have the opportunity to attend specialist TAVI clinics and MDT’s to enhance structural training. There is no routine ward commitment to allow the Fellow to focus their time on developing their interventional experience. The Adelaide fellowship also provides the unique opportunity to experience the provision of healthcare to rural communities and includes an optional clinical attachment to Darwin in the Northern Territory. The Fellow will be encouraged to engage with the Flinders University academic cardiology unit and to prepare and submit cases for national and interventional conferences, which they will be able to attend with available funding. Adelaide, is a thriving, friendly city with excellent transport links. The landscape provides ample opportunity for outdoor activities such as sailing, snorkelling and cycling. There are beautiful sandy beaches and world-class restaurants. Overall the fellowship is a fantastic opportunity, not only for interventional experience but, to experience Adelaide and South Australia and to see the unparalleled beauty of this remote continent.
