    About ELM

    SCAI's Emerging Leader Mentorship (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 at the SCAI, TCT and ACC annual conferences over a two-year period and are assigned mentors specifically chosen to match their interests and aspirations.

    Satellite sessions will explore other topics, such as dedicated leadership skills training. ELM Fellows 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. They will identify 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.
