IMPORTANT NOTICE:  as of 2014, the Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery will REQUIRE the RPVI credential to apply for the Vascular Surgery Qualifying Exam.

What does the Precept cost?

Please call for specific information.  Costs vary based on the following:

  • Tuition assistance for attending physicians and fellows.
  • Discounts for multiple physicians who enroll together.
  • Special arrangements upon request.

Can MetaMD conduct the course in my city?

Yes. For groups of physicians, we can conduct the sessions in your city. Call for requirements.

Does this course fulfill the ARDMS requirements to sit for the RPVI exam?

Yes. Each attendee will interpret at least 500 vascular studies, receive required CMEs and receive a letter from our Medical Director and/or qualified Course Instructor validating the attendee’s interpretations.

How do the RPVI and RVT credentials differ?

The two vascular exams are both offered by ARDMS but vary according to requirements and purpose. The RPVI credential, offered exclusively to physicians, validates the clinical expertise fundamental to vascular sonography interpretation, and recognizes the skills and knowledge required for making consistent and reliable diagnoses in vascular disease. The RPVI credential meets the physician training and experience criteria for the IAC/ ICAVL accreditation process. The Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) credential assesses the competency needed to perform a vascular sonography scan.

What assurance do I have that I will pass the RPVI Exam if I take this course?

While your passing the course is based on many factors, not just taking this required course, we cannot guarantee that you will pass.  However, in the unlikely event that you do not pass your RPVI Exam, you may retake the course at any time within 12 months of your original class date, at one of our regularly scheduled classes, without paying the tuition fee again. You would simply pay a $400 administrative fee.
