SCAI's Annual Fall Fellows Course Prepares New Interventional Cardiologists to Work in the Field
Date:12/8/2008

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The end of fall marks an exciting time for interventional cardiologists about to enter the field and begin their professional careers. Fellows from around the world will gather this week to attend the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) Third Annual Interventional Cardiology Fall Fellows Course in Las Vegas, December 8-12.

Given the aging population and the increasing number of people with cardiovascular disease, proper training of interventional cardiologists is essential to ensure the greatest chance of survival in cardiovascular patients. In the event of a heart attack or stroke, interventional cardiologists are the physicians called upon to perform life-saving treatments, such as angioplasty and stenting, a procedure where plaque is removed and a small mesh tube is inserted into the artery to prop it open.

Offered to fellows in their final year of training, the course provides a unique opportunity for fellows to interact with internationally recognized faculty, further their education with guidance from premiere practicing physicians, and learn the latest cutting-edge technology in the field. Fellows attend five days of expense-free hands-on workshops, live-case medical simulations, and clinical case presentations. New to this year's course are programs focused on pediatric and congenital cardiology, which SCAI plans to make a permanent addition to the Fall Fellows Course curriculum.

"The Fall Fellows Course is a unique opportunity for adult and pediatric interventionalists-in-training to receive final preparation before entering the real world as full-fledged specialists," said SCAI President Ziyad M.
