The Registry of Cardiovascular Specialists and Assistants (RCSA™) is a public, non-profit company that developed a challenging certification curriculum for cardiovascular professionals. Coursework incorporates a demanding training process that facilitates clinical and technical excellence in cognitive, procedural abilities and the development of critical, psycho-motor skills.

After completing their formal educational training, many medical professionals require additional specialized training to perform complex cardiovascular medical procedures.  

Mr. Charles Williams, RCSA's founder, said, "The cath lab is a fast-paced environment that requires attention to detail, quick assessment skills, and critical situational thought processes. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide the ideal learning environment." As a result, medical professionals often question if they are making the right decisions for a patient. RCSA was created to address this situation.  

Colleges and universities throughout the United States now use simulators to ensure that their graduating students receive the best motor-skill experiences and advanced academic training. RCSA will now utilize the Simbionix ANGIO Mentor simulator to provide senior cath lab specialists with needed skills and procedural knowledge. This multidisciplinary surgical simulator provides a realistic hands-on practice of endovascular procedures typically performed under fluoroscopy in the cath lab, interventional suite or an OR.

The course was developed by the RCSA and is the first of its kind that defines cardiovascular simulation training and certification processes to which we will and must adhere. In addition to the basic program, the RCSA team completed the advanced requirements for accreditation as medical instructors and evaluators, as well as the Standards of Training and Practice of Certified Cardiovascular Medical Simulation Trainers (CTAE).  

The continuing education accreditation process has been provided by the CaPCE, ASRT and the California Board of Registered Nurses, which are recognized by RCSA's worldwide cardiovascular professional counterparts. As a result, RCSA Simulation Certification Program attendees develop a professionally recognized skill set that is second-to-none in the field of cardiovascular medicine.
