    Ever Wish There Was a Boot Camp for Cath Lab Managers? Now There Is!

    Attention Cath Lab Managers & Supervisors!

    It's time to gear up for the FREE Cath Lab Leadership Boot Camp at SCAI 2014 on Wednesday, May 28.


    Cath lab managers confront a bevy of administrative issues, juggle rapidly evolving technology, and address conflicts among an array of stakeholders. While most cath lab leaders bring a wealth of clinical experiences to their positions, there has been no defined career path or training program. Most learn on the job, having taken on the job with minimal preparation for the scope of work.


    SCAI's Cath Lab Leadership Boot Camp at SCAI 2014 is a unique educational experience designed specifically to address the challenges and goals faced by cath lab leaders – as well as those who aspire to the role.

    The program will address the role of the cath manager and also delve into common challenges, conflict resolution, and technology evaluation and integration. Registration is free for any attendee that wants to attend this Wednesday Boot Camp session.
