Beginning in 2014, the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery will require all physicians applying for the Vascular Surgery Qualifying Exam to hold the RPVI credential.
Faster and more memorable than any book, this live course will impart the systematic protocol for quality control, analysis, and reporting of all peripheral vascular testing, including DVT, PAD, AAA, renal, and abdominal vascular disease. We created it in 1983 to standardize the field; its content meets and exceeds guidelines set forth by ICAVL and other consensus organizations. The small class size permits us to interact closely to identify and respond to your specific needs at every point. Live post conference support continues in perpetuity for free.
You'll return completely prepared to begin.
There is no deeper preparation for vascular content on the RPVI Exam.
