SCAI Fellows in Training (FIT) Grant
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 Sheila Agyeman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to the continuing medical education institutions that have been selected to receive funding for FIT salaries and benefits, through the 2012-2013 SCAI Interventional Cardiology Fellows-In-Training Grant Program.
