CCEeXAM — Test Date Set

Dear SOCCA Community:

The National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) is ready to administer the very first edition of the Examination of Special Competence in Critical Care Echocardiography (CCEeXAM).

The test date has been set at the 15th of January, 2019. This will be the first step in a much-needed uniform certification process for competence in trans thoracic echocardiography, a vital tool and skill set in the ICU. Please encourage your peers, faculty and trainees to register and take the test.
