Why Are Advanced CHIP Fellowships Important?

Dr. Sanjog Kalra

Just because a lesion is harder to treat, the indication to treat it doesn’t change. The CHIP fellowship ensures we are ready to manage whatever coronary or hemodynamic challenge that crosses the Cath Lab door

Dr. Babar Basir

Doing a CHIP and CTO fellowship was the best career decision I could have made. Doing CTO and CHIP requires dedicated time that in my opinion comes best with either years of gradual experience or for younger operators daily exposure. Treating complex patients with hemodynamic compromise makes you better at treating patient without those issues as well. In my experience graduating from a CHIP/CTO gave me a significant head start in my academic career compared to my peers.
