Vascular Interpretation & RPVI Registry Review
- A variety of learning components including: video lectures, scan demonstrations, interactive components/quizzes, and more to improve diagnostic accuracy.
- All online courses cover the same topics as our comprehensive live courses.
Vascular Interpretation & RPVI Registry Review Online Course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the information needed to successfully pass the Physicians’ Vascular Interpretation (PVI) registry examination and to enhance vascular interpretation skills. The online activity is in a modular, interactive format and includes lectures, over 140 case presentations, and four mock examinations to simulate the certification exam experience. Enrollment is valid for 12 months (365 days) and begins the moment the participant is enrolled.
Additionally, the GCUS Registry Review PASS Guarantee offers you access to the online course version of your registry review program for an additional 90 days if you do not pass your registry exam after completing one of our review programs. Just send us a copy of your exam score (registry exam must be taken within six months of our review) and we’ll grant you a 90 day access extension to the online course version of the review.
