The ESMINT Stroke Fellowship Programme

What is the ESMINT Fellowship Programme?

Considering the growing need for trained neurointerventionalists in the field of ischemic stroke, ESMINT has decided to build a programme (ESMINT Stroke Fellowship Programme) for physicians wishing to obtain competence in Acute Ischemic Stroke Interventions (AISI) as defined by the European Board of Neurointerventionists (EBNI).

Aim of the ESMINT Stroke Fellowship Programme

The goal of the stroke fellowship program is to train young neurointerventionalists in stroke procedures by offering a financial support to join an INR training center.

By the end of the training period, trainees are supposed to have performed at least 25 stroke procedures as first operator and to be able to manage clinically and endovascularly the vast majority of the stroke cases referred to their own center.

Components of the ESMINT Fellowship Programme

This program will consist of 2 parts:

  • A theoretical course dedicated to AISI
  • A practical part (1-year training in an EBNI certified center) supported financially by ESMINT
