TEACH: Training and Education in Advanced Cardiovascular Hemodynamics will provide an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of cardiovascular physiology—namely diagnosis and therapeutics—and will help build the foundation for additional, advanced online courses and regional meetings. Among the goals of this program is the establishment of a dedicated group of clinicians interested in promoting education and the incorporation of advanced hemodynamic principles into their clinical practices.
The overall goal of the TEACH program is to provide clinicians with in-depth knowledge about cardiac pathophysiology and the hemodynamics of mechanical circulatory support. Having completed TEACH I, attendees will already have been exposed to the basic concepts of cardiovascular physiology and will have seen how the subjects taught in the TEACH program impact their clinical practices.
The next step for the TEACH program is to ensure the development of a core group of clinicians who can be called upon as faculty at future TEACH programs and who are able to give informative, grand rounds lectures on topics related to:
TEACH stands for “Training and Education of Advanced Cardiovascular Hemodynamics.”
The objective of TEACH is to establish a group of physicians who are known experts in cardiovascular hemodynamics and can train other physicians in this field of study as well as become faculty at major meetings pertaining to this topic.
There are three different levels of certification:
To qualify for TEACH II, you must have obtained your Level 1 certification through successful completion of TEACH I.
Upon successful completion of the course, attendees will have the opportunity to join a speakers’ bureau to lecture on advanced hemodynamic topics at meetings being organized across the country. Educational materials will also be made available to aid the introduction of focused mini-courses on the subject into the syllabi of medical schools and fellowship curricula.
Yes. Once you have completed Level 1 certification, you can schedule a regional program and use the provided agenda and packet.
