The idea is to train physicians, cardiac surgeons, anaesthetists, intensivists and nurses in European centres of excellence for 2/3 years so that they can return to their countries of origin and run the program for CHD.
The selection criteria of the candidates will be given the utmost attention.
Recipients of the grants will have to sign a binding moral clause stating that once they have completed the training they will return to their countries to allow the completion of the project. (Roberto Ferrari)
