Purpose of the Grant Programme
To provide an opportunity for specialised training in the field of non-invasive imaging modalities (Echocardiography, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac Computed Tomography), in order to help doctors to achieve experience and skills in a high standard clinical centre or University with a large domain expertise within 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.
Eligible applicants for the Grant are those who are:
- Under 38 years old or in training under 40 years old on the day of the application deadline AND
- Members of the EACVI Silver or Gold level for 2017
- Citizens or residents for tax purposes of a country which is a regular ESC Member country or an ESC Affiliated Member Country
- Medical graduates at any stage in their career
- In agreement with a host institution
- outside their own country or the country in which they followed their initial medicine training (if it is a regular ESC Member country)
- which offers good training opportunities and is acknowledged as an expert centre for that particular field of cardiovascular imaging.
IMPORTANT: The final validation of the application will be subject to visa acceptance (if necessary).
NOTE: Applicants who are in doubt about their eligibility are advised to contact the EACVI prior to submitting an application. Applicants are advised to read the explanatory notes carefully before submitting an application.
The Grant may be held for a period of 3 to 6 months. The recommended training period is 6 months. Applications for training periods shorter than 3 monthswill not be accepted.
The training period must start after completion of the whole application process (after receiving formal confirmation from the EACVI) and before the end of the calendar year of the programme. Any extensions of the training period beyond the recommended 6 month period should be agreed with the host institution, provided the extra costs can be covered from other sources (e.g. candidate's institution, personal funds, industry etc). The potential extra costs should not come from other ESC or EACVI grants.
Level of support
EACVI Training Grant recipients will receive a sum of 1,500 Euros per month for their daily subsistence. An agreement will be signed between the Host Institution and the Grant recipient.
If for any reason the Grant recipient has to stop his/her training period, the refund of the Grant may be required pro rata.
For host centres offering a dedicated training programme, the EACVI will provide 500 Euros per month and per trainee to cover the institutional costs (workplace arrangements, informatics, educational material, teaching and support).
Submitted proposals should focus on specialised training in technique(s) related to the field of non-invasive imaging modalities (Echocardiography, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac Computed Tomography).
