Cardiology Grants and Fellowships for European Researchers



At McKesson Medical Imaging we’re passionate about cardiology, and we’re also passionate about cardiology education, especially for up-and-coming cardiologists.  That’s why we’re pleased to pass on information about several upcoming grants and fellowships from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

Some application deadlines are coming up soon, so spread the word to colleagues and friends in Europe.
