SCAI RAMP: Delivering Transradial Training Directly to Your Facility!
SCAI is excited to present a whole new model in education with the introduction of its Radial Access Mentorship & Preceptorship (RAMP) program.
Aimed at medical centers and multispecialty practices, SCAI RAMP delivers on-site, in-person transradial training from physicians with extensive transradial experience.
No other society offers this type of education! SCAI RAMP advances how transradial intervention is taught by moving it beyond the classroom training approach and into your facility.
Even better as Program Director Adhir Shroff, MD, FSCAI points out, "RAMP offers a completely unbiased and brand-neutral education that is ideal for hospital administrators and physicians who agree that radial training is important to their institutions. And it's a good way to start a program off on the right foot."
Developed as a means of continuing access to radial education and physician experts, RAMP picks up where the SCAI's TRIP program leaves off. "TRIP provides an outstanding education to physicians interested in implementing radial, and then RAMP keeps the momentum going by offering on-site procedural training for a full hospital team," said Dr. Shroff. "This type of training improves the likelihood that physicians and cath lab staff will adopt the radial approach and maintain a radial practice."
Structured to maximize physician interaction, RAMP provides one day of didactic curriculum focusing on the basics of starting a transradial program combined with on-site proctorship during cases. These programs will provide a great opportunity for physicians to learn common technical aspects of the radial approach, particularly with regard to patient and lesion assessment and catheter selection. Learning from an expert in your home institution will provide just the right setting to gain full exposure to the opportunities and challenges with this approach.
