BCS Endorsed Education for Trainees
Although the BCS doesn’t have a mandate for training which lies with the
respective Deaneries, the knowledge and expertise of BCS members and Affiliated
Groups allow us to develop high quality education for our trainees. To
facilitate this, BCS has developed a system to endorse appropriate programmes as
BCS Endorsed Education.
Such programmes will be based on, and mapped to the Cardiology Curriculum. They will
also provide some formative assessment.
Delivering high quality education for trainees, trained cardiologists and allied
professionals in association with our Affiliated Groups. Read
