TEACH: Training and Education in Advanced Cardiovascular Hemodynamics will provide an in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of cardiovascular physiology relevant to diagnosis and therapeutics and form 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 incorporation of advanced hemodynamic principles into clinical practice.
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 and TEACH II, attendees will already have been exposed to the basic concepts and have seen how the understanding conveyed through the TEACH program impacts clinical practice. The next step for the TEACH program is to ensure the development of a core group of clinicians that can be called upon as faculty at future TEACH programs and who are able to give informative grand round lectures on topics related to:
Training and Education of Advanced Cardiovascular Hemodynamics
To establish a group of physicians who are known experts in cardiovascular hemodynamics and have the ability to train other physicians in this field of study and to become faculty at major meetings pertaining to this topic.
There are three different levels of certification:
In order 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 speaker’s bureau to lecture on advanced hemodynamic topics in meetings being organized throughout the country. Educational material will also be made available for introduction of focused mini-courses into medical school and fellowship curricula.
Yes. Once you have completed Level 1 certification, you can schedule a regional program and use the provided agenda and packet.
