Companies and organisations providing the simulators and technical support for 2023:
|Special thanks to Dr Manish Kalla who is the Simulator training lead for 2023. We also acknowledge and thank all our Simulator Faculty who have provided expert input into arranging and coordinating the Simulator programme.|
Supervised training sessions available for 2023 :
- Diagnostic coronary angiography via radial or femoral access
- Percutaneous coronary intervention (simple, complex and CTO PCI)
- Pacing (lead placement and programming)
- Transaortic valve implantation (TAVI)
- Structural heart (ASD/PFO closure)
- Electrophysiology (EP)
All pre-arranged sessions will last 60 minutes and consist of either one or two-to-one tutorial with an experienced trainer. Where appropriate, the training will follow key objectives tracking to the JRCPTB 2010 Specialty curriculum for cardiology (amended 2016), but will also be tailored to the experience of the individual so is suitable for all trainees and consultants. The TAVI, EP, CTO, PCI and structural heart stations are particularly geared towards hands-on training for senior interventional trainees/fellows and consultants. Click here to register. The education zone booking slots will be available to book on the 4th step in the registration process.
Upon successful completion of a simulation training session you will be awarded a British Cardiovascular Society certificate, confirming learning (relating to these objectives) has taken place. This certificate can be incorporated into your e-Portfolio and linked to the appropriate part of the curriculum. It will be emailed in pdf format to the email address used to register for the session.
All delegates who attend a training session will be expected to provide feedback after the event via an online survey which will be emailed.
Due to the demand for sessions and the considerable resources invested, we expect all sessions to be fully utilised. As such, any cancellations need to be made at the latest by 1700 on Monday 29th May 2023. Failure to attend a session is taken very seriously by the BCS. Any delegate failing to attend a booked session will have any other booked sessions cancelled and will be contacted by the BCS Programme Committee. They will be unable to register for Imaging Village or Simulator Village sessions for the following 2 years and will be asked to explain in writing why they did not attend the meeting. Non-attending training doctors will have their Educational Supervisor and Deanery Training Program Directors informed. All other doctors will have their Clinical Service Lead informed, and Clinical Physiologists will have their Departmental Head and Line Manager informed.
