• Ready to Launch Your Career? Apply for ELM Today!

    Opportunities like this only come every two years!

    SCAI's Emerging Leader Mentorship (ELM) Program, in partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF), is accepting applications for the next wave of interventional/invasive cardiology leaders!

    A critically important component of the ELM program is that it also provides career advancement opportunities for applicants who aren't selected for the ELM fellowships. After the selection program is complete, the Program Committee will reach out to applicants who did not win a spot in the program, taking the time to understand their goals, aspirations, and talents, and then finding ways to channel their energy into SCAI and partnering organizations. Many of SCAI's brightest young leaders are ELM fellowship runners-up!

    However, you can't get involved if you don't apply.

    About ELM

    SCAI's ELM Program, in partnership with ACC and CRF, is charged with finding a small, select group of up-and-coming physicians and facilitating their transition into the next generation of great thinkers, presenters, teachers and national leaders. ELM Fellows participate in six training sessions over a two year period and will be assigned a panel of mentors specifically chosen to match their interests and aspirations.

    ELM Fellows participate in six training sessions over a two year period, timed with the SCAI, TCT and ACC annual conferences, and will be assigned a panel of mentors specifically chosen to match their interests and aspirations. Satellite sessions will explore other topics, such as dedicated leadership skill training and the role of industry.  They will also be encouraged to, and assisted in, identifying opportunities for committee service and faculty assignment with committee/program chairs at SCAI and partnering organizations. Identifying those opportunities congruent with their interests and developing niches, as well as opportunities to develop their ideas and projects, will be a core goal of the ELM Program. Their progress over the two-year period will be tracked actively by the Program Committee to assure autonomous future success.
