Advanced Training Programs for Physicians

  • All programs involve teaching of a proven innovative technique, an update or advancement of an existing procedure. CAST does not offer programs for training in procedures that are under development or that are under experimental protocol.
  • Programs are led by physicians specializing in the technique.
  • All programs will have sufficient volume of cases to support the educational goals of the participants.
  • Each program is subject to an approval process through the core faculty committee and the CAST Advisory Board to ensure compliance with regulatory, legal, governmental, ethical and scientific issues. An additional oversight group independent of CAST, the Cleveland Clinic’s Innovative Practice Committee, is consulted to approve programs for patient safety.
  • A comprehensive application review process ensures each program caters to the needs of experienced physicians, and the participants meet pre requisites specific to the program.
  • Participants receive a “Certificate of Participation” upon successful completion of the program.
