SCCT Verification Program
Share |

Based on the published  ACCF/AHA requirements* for training in cardiovascular CT, the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) offers a process for the verification of training at Level 2 and Level 3. SCCT also offers a program certifying vascular imaging with CT experience. Prior to starting your application, please use the checklist links below to view requirements for physicians who have already completed residency/fellowship training.

All applications are reviewed by the Verification Committee. Applications are process and reviewed within 6 weeks.

For more information on SCCT's Verification Program, contact verification@scct.org
