EACVI Certification Exams: what new in 2017?
It's time for a change to improve the EACVI certification processes!
EACVI would like to offer you the best services to align with the ESC global Certification Offer.

  • All the Echo exams will be run on iPads
  • 3 new processes will be launched: CMR CHD, CMR lab accreditation, exam in Nuclear Cardiology
  • Fees: EACVI didn't change its registration fees and the way the exams were managed over the 13 years. From now on, all fees will be aligned with the other ESC sub-specialties exams and will include the logbook management at no supplement. This means an increase of 80€ per exam registration (for Members Silver and Gold) and + 80€ (for members Basic and Ivory and non-members).

The EACVI would like to congratulate all the successful candidates who passed the EACVI certification process. Discover who they are, which country they come from:
