Training for structural and adult congenital heart disease interventions remains undeveloped. With the advent of recent percutaneous interventions for the treatment of structural and valvular heart disease, such as transcatheter aortic and pulmonary valve implantation, mitral valve repair, and the expansion of shunt closure procedures, there is a clear need to define the training requirements for this category of procedures. The training needs to be aligned with the goals and priorities of a basic or advanced level and be categorized into acquired and congenital. This document will define the training needs and knowledge base for the developing field of structural heart disease intervention.
