SCTS is honoured and privileged to announce the winners of the final round of fellowships with Mr Ionescu’s support to the wider cardiothoracic multidisciplinary community.
The applications were advertised in the SCTS website as well as by flyers to all the members. The deadline was the 15th August 2021.
All applications were scored to the SCTS Scoring Matrix by a panel of SCTS Officers and the scores were averaged to rank the candidates. The final recommendations were finalised by unanimous decision by the scoring teams for various streams and are submitted for consideration by the President and Mr Ionescu.
We can confirm that all applications were duly considered and recommended after section leads and relevant teams due to the spread of experience and variation in the speciality.
SCTS Education thanks Mr Ionescu for his generosity with this final round of fellowships and all the support for the various ventures of SCTS education over the years which has enabled us to offer all these awards to our membership for the wider benefit of our patients.
