This 2-day comprehensive RPVI exam review is taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts and designed for physicians preparing to take the ARDMS Physician in Vascular Interpretation (PVI) board examination. The course is based on the ARDMS PVI examination content outline and is structured with exam specific tutorials, interactive case study scenarios and multiple “mock” examinations using an audience response system.
As an added bonus, participants who attend the Registered Physician in Vascular Ultrasound review at our St. Pete Beach, FL facility will receive the following:

  • 5 consecutive complimentary days to review the previously recorded online, on-demand RPVI review course after completing the live event
  • Results of the mock exam will be e-mailed to each participant within two weeks after the program to identify specific areas of strength and weakness.
Combine the Physician Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Registry Review with the GUI PASS Package (Vascular Technology & Ultrasound Physics registry review workbook, flashcards, and CD mock exam) for a complete study plan and the most comprehensive review available.  

Unable to travel?  The Registered Physician in Vascular Ultrasound (RPVI) registry review seminar is streamed live to the Internet.  Online participants are able to submit questions and actively take part in the mock exams using a virtual transponder.  The live, interactive RPVI registry review webinar is the perfect cost-effective, convenient alternative to attend the RPVI ultrasound registry preparation course.  The RPVI registry review workshop is also available in an “on-demand” online format.  Call for details!
