Date:12/17/2007

ology leaders will evaluate applications based on the training programs' proven track record for producing the highest-quality interventionalists and a demonstrated need for financial support. Grant monies will be distributed by SCAI and may be used only to pay for salaries and benefits for newly enrolled interventional cardiology fellows-in-training at the SCAI-selected institutions.
