This year NIPC were delighted to launch the NIPC Fellowship Programme. The Fellowship Committee, chaired by Prof Gerard Flaherty, set up the programme which seeks to recognise individuals of high calibre who have made significant contributions to cardiovascular disease prevention, clinical activity, scholarship, research and leadership. The benefits of the Fellowship are to unite a community of individuals with a strong interest and passion in prevention, both in Ireland and abroad.

Congratulations to our Honorary Fellows and to the Fellowship Class of 2020.

We hope that this award will encourage you to continue to support NIPC’s mission to “provide leadership through discovery, training and applied programmes to prevent and control cardiovascular disease for all, raise the standards of preventive cardiology practice, enhance cardiovascular health and promote healthier lifestyles, and prepare leaders to advance preventive healthcare nationally and internationally.”

Call for Fellowship Applications

The NIPC Fellowship Programme honours individuals who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to the Institute and who have made highly significant contributions to the field of preventive cardiology, either by virtue of their clinical leadership or track record in education, research and/or public policy development.

The NIPC Fellowship Committee will occasionally nominate individuals of outstanding stature within the field of preventive cardiology for the award of Honorary Fellowship as the highest academic honour which can be bestowed by the Institute.

If you would like to apply for the 2021 Fellowship Programme, please keep an eye on the NIPC website or sign up for our newsletter for details of the application opening date.
