The two-year Master's Program in Coronary and Structural Interventional Cardiology is organized into modules:
- an entire two-year period, with a fulltime foreseen attendance, dedicated to specialized training in both coronary and structural cardiology;
- a one-year self-standing module, with a fulltime foreseen attendance, dedicated to advanced training in structural cardiology only.
Candidates can choose to enroll either in the two-year track (120 CFU) or the one-year track (60 CFU).
The Master Program consists of a part of face-to-face didactic activity, a substantial part of clinical-practical activities in the clinic and hospital ward, and concludes with the formulation, design, and writing of an interventional cardiology protocol with performance of a clinical-experimental thesis.
There will also be periodic checks on progress in learning interventional techniques. They will be made through discussion of the revascularization strategy and of useful materials on selected cases. Checks will also be made on CT measurement for appropriate selection of valve prostheses in transcatheter valve procedures. The periodic reviews may result in an outcome expressed as a judgment of suitability and not as a numerical evaluation. Eventually, there might be a feedback.
