Abstract

Differently from many European and non-European countries, currently in Italy there is not an official, well-defined process for training, evaluation and certification for interventional cardiologists. Interventional Cardiology is an important branch of Cardiology with peculiarities such as to need specific theoretical and practical training. The lack of standardization of training criteria may result in disparities in the quality of care offered to patients in different locations. The Italian Society of Interventional Cardiology (SICI-GISE) has therefore developed an independent certification process for Italian interventional cardiologists. This is a first step towards the implementation of a well-defined training and certification process for both coronary and structural interventions, and for regular re-certification of established operators.The certification will be issued by SICI-GISE and will be based on the recognition of the skills attained by interventional cardiologists in the setting of coronary diagnostic and interventional procedures. This document describes the minimum eligibility criteria for the training centers, which have the task of recording and validating the training activity carried out by each interventional cardiologist, and the minimum competence requirements that should be attained by the operators to obtain the certification.
