Admission to PPCI is not rolling. The applications of all candidates applying for a specific session of the training are evaluated simultaneously after the application deadline for that session has passed. There is an Admissions Committee made up of individuals across training sites who evaluates the applications and selects a group of eight applicants to attend each session of the program. Admission to the program is competitive. Applicants will be notified of the admissions committee’s decision on their application no more than one month after the application deadline.
