  2. 2. Continuing Education and Training catalogue 2011-2012 Lifelong Learning in CardiologyEducation and lifelong learning are core to the European Society of Cardiology(ESC). Supporting training in cardiology and Continuing Medical Education arecommitments essential to the ESC Mission: “to reduce the burden of cardiovasculardisease in Europe”.This brochure consolidates the activities of the ESC with its Constituent Bodies(National Societies and the ESC Specialty Centre) in order to guide you throughyour Lifelong Learning, Continuing Medical Education (CME), ContinuingProfessional Development (CPD) and Research needs.Although the most traditional means of delivering CME activities remains live events(congresses & meetings), the ESC is reaching out more and more to its members’requirements and focusing on distance learning as an increasingly convenientvehicle for CME and CPD.All ESC educational activities, from publications to congresses, are structuredaround and mapped out on curricula (ESC Core Curriculum for generalcardiology and Specialty Centre Curricula), hence ensuring sound education andtransfer of knowledge. Increasingly, ESC Educational activities involve knowledgebased assessment. This is becoming ever more systematic with distance learningproducts, and ultimately with the growing Certification activities of the ESCSpecialty Centre.The Specialty Centre of the European Society of Cardiology is a worldreference Knowledge Centre in Cardiology. The knowledge, training andexpertise its members have gained via the ESC educational programmes arerecognised and certified, consequently bringing about and promoting excellence inCardiology in Europe and worldwide.Finally, the ESC is, and always has been, an advocate and supporter of research.Therefore, this guide will also provide you information on the variety of Researchand Training Grants the ESC and their Constituent Bodies offer each year. 1
  3. 3. All ESC educational programmes are, where appropriate, submitted to the EBACfor CME/CPD accreditation. EBAC works in accordance with standard proceduresestablished by the UEMS-EACCME.Continuing Medical Education in Europe - Did you know?• A CME credit is a unit of time that a physician spends attending a CME activity (1 CME = 1 hour in most cases)• Collection of CME Credits is mandatory for Physicians in many European Countries (Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, United Kingdom).• CME Credits can be collected for participation in live events, web courses, articles and CD-ROMs.• Physicians can collect CME Credits at the National and European level.• European CME Credits collected by American citizens can be converted to AMA Pra Category 1 Credit. 2

  29. 29. EAE – Echocardiography research Grant ESC Grants, ESC Specialty Centre Grants & FellowshipsESC Grants, ESC Specialty Centre Grants & Fellowships The European Association of Echocardiography (EAE) offers a research Grant programme to help young doctors to obtain research experience in a high standard academic centre in an ESC member country. Application deadline: 30 September 2011 EAPCI Grants in interventional cardiology The EAPCI grants provide an opportunity to medical graduates (under 36) having completed the major part of their cardiology training but before obtaining a “permanent”, “senior staff” or “consultant“ position for clinical training in the field of interventional cardiology in an ESC Member country other than their own. This programme can be considered as a valorisation of the geographical mobility as well as cultural exchanges and professional practice in the field of cardiology. Deadline for application: 15 January 2012 EHRA training fellowship programmes Unique programme for both, where centres and individuals are invited to apply • 2 Sub-specialities available: - Clinical Electrophysiology with emphasis on catheter ablation (one or two year programme) - Arrhythmias and Cardiac Pacing with emphasis on ICD/CRT (one year programme) Application opens on: 15 September 2011 Deadline: 15 December 2011 HFA – Research Fellowship & Nurse Training Fellowship The objective of HFA’s fellowship programme is to offer career enhancement and international experience and at the same time, to encourage advances in the field of heart failure medicine. Generally, winners are required to work in a different country and attend HFA Congress with a monetary grant. For more information, Search Engine on www.escardio.org 28
