    Mission

    To advise the SCAI Board of Trustees on SCAI’s strategic educational direction commensurate with SCAI’s overall strategic goals, and to review and develop educational products* related to the clinical practice of interventional cardiologists and interventional cardiology fellows in training.

    *Those SCAI programs which contain educational components but are not related to the output of educational products around clinical practice should be sent to the Education Committee on a “review and respond” basis.

    • Review all proposals for educational products for quality of content, impact on target audiences and financial performance.
    • Develop and maintain a 5-year strategic educational plan in collaboration with the Executive Committee and the Board of Trustees.
    • Coordinate assessment of educational products of SCAI committees into annual educational programming agenda and priority focus areas.
    • Collect, review, and communicate the educational needs of SCAI membership.
    • Maintain accreditation for continuing medical education by the appropriate certifying agencies.
