SCAI is teaming up with several industry leaders to provide exciting funding opportunities for cardiologists-in-training whose research shows promise in advancing cardiovascular techniques and patient care.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions Foundation (SCAI) is pleased to inform you of an award opportunity near and dear to our hearts. In August of 2007, SCAI Board of Trustees member Gregory Braden, MD, FSCAI tragically passed away. An active researcher, educator and friend to the Society, Dr. Braden was best known for his pioneering work in the field of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), coronary atherectomy, and chronic total occlusions. In keeping with his vivacious and generous spirit, Dr. Braden’s friends and family have established the Gregory Braden Memorial Fund through the Forsyth Medical Center Foundation in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Important Update Regarding SCAI FIT Grant Program:
Thank you for your interest in SCAI’s Fellows in Training (FIT) grant program, sponsored during the past five years by several medical device companies. We are writing to inform you that, due to changing circumstances within those companies, SCAI is no longer able to continue the Fellows in Training (FIT) Grant program. In the past 5 years, thanks to the generous support of Boston Scientific, Cordis and Medtronic, SCAI’s FIT Grants program has distributed several million dollars to over 80 interventional cardiology training programs, making an important contribution to medical education.
We know how challenging funding for interventional cardiology programs can be, thus moving forward we hope that your program will benefit from other available sources of funding. As SCAI becomes aware of such funding sources, we will post them on www.scai.org and send you updates. Please note that this change does not impact the second disbursement of grant awards to the previously announced 2012-2013 winners.
Again, thank you very much for your prior interest in this program, and for sharing SCAI’s commitment to professional education of the highest quality. If you have any questions or inquiries please contact Rebecca Ortega at firstname.lastname@example.org.
