The CCI Board of Trustees has been allocating funds to give back to the cardiovascular education community as part of its strategic plan since 2012. These funds are used to host the annual Cardiovascular Educators’ Forum each Spring. Educators from invasive cardiovascular technology, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound, and electrophysiology programs from across the United States and Canada are invited to participate, through an application process, at a minimal cost with travel, conference meals, and one night hotel costs covered.

The next Cardiovascular Educators’ Forum is scheduled Friday, April 21 - Saturday, April 22, 2023.  If you are interested in being considered to attend the forum in 2023, please contact Cresta Archuletta.
