Benefits of Membership

 

EDUCATION

 

  • APACVS presents an annual educational meeting, focused on cardiac critical care, vascular and thoracic surgery.
  • APACVS hosts several hands-on sessions including a Certificate of Completion in Invasive Skills Course, a Thoracoscopic Surgical First Assistant Course, a Cardiothoracic Surgery Advanced Life Support Course, Mechanical Assist Course, and many others planned for the coming years.
  • APACVS co-sponsors the Allied Health Symposium and Critical Care Symposium at the annual AATS meeting.
  • APACVS website provides a database for on-line case and procedure logging.


PUBLICATIONS/RESOURCES

 

  • The annual Practice & Compensation Profile provides data on the role of the CVT PA in contemporary practice and the compensation received.
  • The Association's magazine, CardioVISION, is published quarterly and keeps readers informed of news and events affecting the cardiac, vascular and thoracic PA.


PROMOTION OF THE CVT PA

 

  • APACVS Fellow Membership provides qualified members the opportunity to display a level of experience and excellence in practice through the use of the FAPACVS designation. (One must be an Active member before applying to become a Fellow.)
  • APACVS has developed and produced a CD-rom to help educate the medical community about what cardiac, vascular and thoracic PAs can do.


PROFESSIONAL LIAISON

 

  • APACVS maintains professional liaison relationships with STS, AATS, AAPA, and AASPA and APAC. These liaisons have provided critical support for cardiac, vascular and thoracic PAs facing regional and national legislative or regulatory battles and support our mission of education of the cardiac, vascular and thoracic PA in all arenas.
  • APACVS has a delegate in the AAPA House of Delegates, the legislative body of the AAPA. This representative has been vital in educating the non-CVT PA as to the critical role the CVT PA plays in contemporary medicine.
  • APACVS has developed positive, collaborative relationships with other professional organizations, including the NCCPA.
