Who: Cardiac allied healthcare professionals, Cardiac industry professionals, Individuals looking to break into or advance their cardiac career – Prepare for an industry or clinical role such as a Structural Heart/Interventional Cardiology Clinical specialist, Sales Representative or Cath Lab Tech
Learning Bundle Overview: The Interventional Cardiology/Structural Heart bundle assumes no prior knowledge of the cardiac space, beginning with foundational lessons in anatomy and rhythm analysis and progressing all the way to advanced concepts and virtual clinical rotations.
Build a strong conceptual and practical understanding of interventional cardiology and structural heart therapies. Whether you are transitioning from an adjacent field or starting fresh in your cardiac career, you will achieve a comprehensive understanding of the disease states of interventional cardiology and structural heart subspecialties as well as the clinical applications and devices used to diagnose and treat these diseases. You will experience virtual clinical rotations with accompanying instruction outlining these catheter-based procedures and the key procedural roles and responsibilities of the clinical specialist working for a medical device company and a cath lab tech working for a healthcare system.
Learning Modalities: Video Lessons and their accompanying Knowledge Checks, Checkpoints that highlight key concepts, Postcard Puzzles to improve visual memory, 3D interactive Virtual Tours, and Milestones that allow you to assess your comprehension and critical thinking for the entire course.

1 Week IC/SH Workshop, $3,150
May 1-5, 2023
November 13-17, 2023
Workshops encompass onsite lectures and concept review, simulated laboratory and clinical follow-up scenarios, virtual clinical rotations, and rigorous written and practical assessments. The learning experience includes classroom settings, Cath Lab simulations and virtual case observations. Workshops are overseen by CCDS-certified personnel and individuals will be continuously assessed for proficiency.
The 1 week IC/SH workshop is the most comprehensive option for those interested in taking their career to the next level. The objective of the 1 week IC/SH workshop is to give individuals an opportunity to prepare for a cath lab technician or a structural heart device representative. This workshop is designed for extensive practical application of previously acquired concepts, and as such is not intended to be an individual’s first foray into the material. Attendees will receive intensive practical learning opportunities and scenario-driven simulations. Workshop attendees will build off of concepts from online learning in imaging workshops, guided live cases, group projects, and hands-on experience with the tools and equipment of the cath lab. Daily assessments are included to help track progress and understanding of the concepts.
Imaging assessment including angiography, echocardiography, IVUS, and OCT
CHIP patient management and case studies
Cath lab environment, roles, workflow, and equipment
Rhythms, 12 leads, and cardiac rhythm management
SH interventions: congenital, valves, and left atrial appendage management
Ongoing daily assessments
