ESCeL platform

The tool to improve the harmoni sation of cardiology education and training

On behalf of the ESC Educational Committee

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Several surveys demonstrated in the past a large heterogeneity of cardiology training and education in European countries. Taking into consideration the reality of the free movement of doctors and patients across borders, the cardiology community feels a strong need for the harmonisation of training and education of European health professionals. The ESC has already produced the standards, and recently developed the tool to deliver these standards: the ESCeL platform. This project is currently on the road to success. A challenge for the future is the possibility of massive participation of professionals, in thousands, not hundreds. Although this project raises a lot of questions and challenges it also opens a wealth of new possibilities for the future of our profession and particularly the delivery of a high standard of care to our cardiovascular patients.
