Cardiac and Vascular Sonography Educators' Luncheon at the SDMS Annual Conference


Cardiac and Vascular Sonography Educators and Clinical Coordinators are invited to join Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) for a free Lunch & Learn during the SDMS Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas during the Educators' Track pre-conference session on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Registration and topic information will be available here in August 2017.

Since 2011, CCI has been offered the opportunity to host a luncheon at the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) Annual Conference. At the 2012 SDMS Annual Conference in Seattle we hosted a complimentary luncheon for thirty educators and gave them an overview of CCI, its history, and a recap of the Educators’ Forum. Again at the 2013 SDMS Annual Conference we hosted over 60 cardiac and vascular sonography educators for lunch and discussed CCI’s new examinations under development and also our international growth and focus. In 2014 over 50 educators attended and the presentation focused on examinations under the pilot phase and also CCI’s Ethics and Appeals process. In 2015 CCI led round table discussions on several topics with the attendees such as innovative items on examinations, credential choice and recognition, and accreditation. At the 2016 luncheon, for the first time, an external (to CCI) expert was brought in to discuss reasonable accommodations and how it relates to education. Dr. Deborah Larew Director, Office for Students with Disabilities at Valencia College gave a fantastic presentation to attendees which is available below.

These luncheons have reinforced CCI’s connection to educators in a face-to-face setting and strengthen the professional triad.
