Continuing Education

SICP Clinical  Instructor CEU

Clinical instructors affiliated with a CAAHEP-accredited invasive cardiovascular technology or electrophysiology education program can receive up to six (6) continuing education unit credits per calendar year for providing cardiovascular/electrophysiology clinical student instruction. One (1) SICP CEU may be awarded for two (2) hours of clinical instruction.

Student instruction includes:
1. Observing the student perform the procedure or part of the procedure, and offering
technical tips and protocol suggestions.
2. Reviewing the images, hemodynamic,electrophysiology or procedural outcome results
with the student after the procedure and discussing pathology, pathophysiology, anatomy,
differential diagnosis, expected clinical manifestations, technique,
procedural options, laboratory values or treatment options of certain conditions.

Note: Time spent “in the room” with the student and not providing instruction
is not considered educational and is not eligible for CEUs. The program
director must maintain documentation of the clinical instructor’s time
spent providing student instruction.

This should include date and time, as well as the instructor’s and student’s
signatures. A sample clinical instructor log is available from SICP; however,
all clinical instructor logs should be submitted to the program director,
not to SICP or CCI.  The program director of the invasive
cardiovascular technology or electrophysiology educational program
must register with SICP and submit the CEU credits quarterly or
by semester, based on the educational schedule. The program director may
apply and be approved for up to three years. However, the invasive cardiovascular
technology or electrophysiology educational program must remain
accredited.

The program director of an invasive cardiovascular technology or electrophysiology
educational program must submit the CEU credits for clinical instructorship
within six months and must maintain documentation of the clinical
instructor’s work for three years.

The CEU-request form (see sample at
right) is available from SICP by contacting membership@sicp.com.
