Percutaneous coronary intervention, PCI, is recursive process driven by decision making followed by action; the outcome is critically dependent on the procedural knowledge and skills of individual operators. In PCI procedural knowledge has been traditionally transferred employing the “trainee-mentor” approach. However, in number of profession including medicine, cognitive approach of procedural knowledge transfer has been shown to be superior to the conventional method. Here, we propose that the cognitive approach holds promise to improve the knowledge transfer and expertise in PCI and should be further explored.
