SCAI, ACC and CRF Announce 2013-2015 ELM Recipients
SCAI has announced the selection of 12 early-career interventional cardiologists to participate in the Emerging Leader Mentorship (ELM) Program, a collaborative program developed by SCAI in partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF). These physicians will participate in an intense, two-year mentorship program to improve and refine their skills as leaders in medicine, ambassadors for their specialty and advocates for their patients.
Developing Future Leaders in the Field of Interventional/Invasive Cardiology
What is ELM?
The SCAI Emerging Leader Mentorship (ELM) Program in formal partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) is charged with finding a small, highly selective group of up-and-coming physicians (up to 10 per two-year cycle) 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, timed with the SCAI, TCT and ACC annual conferences, and will be assigned a Mentor 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 own 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.
A critically important component of the ELM program, is that it also provides career advancement opportunities for applicants who aren't selected for the 10 fellowships. After the selection program is complete, the Program Committee will make personal calls 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 runner-ups! However, you can't get involved if you don't apply!
The application process for the 2013-2015 Emerging Leader Mentorship (ELM) Program is closed.
