I have level 2 certification in vascular (ABVM/RPVI) and will qualify for level 2 in echo/nuclear in my program. I understand there is not much scope for EP (no jobs) and I am not interested in interventional career. I'm thinking about non-invasive field - CT/MR/Echo/Nuclear/Vascular. I do not have opportunities for CT/MR training during 3 yr general cardiology fellowship in my program. Is it worth to invest additional year for training in CT/MR? I have read some old posts in this forum and CT/MR does not seem to be that promising. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

If you want some CT/MRI exposure during your general cardiology fellowship, maybe do an away rotation? If you wish to pursue even greater expertise or want to go into imaging academics, an extra imaging year would probably help.

Is there a privately available Level 2 training to become eligible for RPVI? I looked at the 2-day Cleveland Clinic course, but not sure if this gives you Level 2, or if it's just board review.

Looking for something analogous to the Johns Hopkins Cardiac CT Practicum course is for Cardiac CT Level 2 training , but for vascular ultrasound if available.
