As Vice President of Government Relations for the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), you will serve as the principal advisor to SCAI leadership and its 5,000 members on policy and advocacy. Reporting to the CEO and working closely with the board of trustees, Advocacy Committee, and other key departments, you will shape the policy and communication of SCAI’s advocacy efforts, ensuring that SCAI has a proactive voice in driving federal and state advocacy initiatives. Focused exclusively on invasive/interventional cardiovascular care, SCAI is a recognized leader in quality improvement and a proponent of efforts that help patients and their families make informed decisions about prevention, symptom recognition, testing, and treatment; your efforts will ensure that patients have every opportunity for cardiovascular care.
In this role, you will develop, implement, manage, and coordinate all of SCAI’s government relations and advocacy activities, evaluate the impact of proposed legislation on interventional cardiologists and their patients, and provide leadership, guidance, and a unified voice.

In order to ensure that the interests of our members and the patients they serve are considered in federal and state healthcare policy decisions, you will initiate, cultivate, and maintain successful relationships with congressional members and staff as well as federal agencies such as the FDA, CMS, NIH, and AHRQ. You will identify and form strategic coalitions with patient groups, partner organizations, physicians, and industry partners to stay informed and to advocate for life-saving procedures.
SCAI has experienced tremendous growth over the past 10 years and today represents more than 5,000 members across 80 countries. Interventional cardiology is a tremendously interesting, important, and constantly changing field where you will be working with world premier experts. SCAI transforms life-saving innovation into life-saving action by providing cutting-edge, high-quality education for interventionalists and their teams.
