The American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists have collaborated to provide the Basic Perioperative TEE Program, which fulfills the education component of the Extended CME Pathway for the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) certification in Basic Perioperative TEE.

The course is offered as a computer-based program allowing physicians to participate in the course conveniently at their own pace. Throughout the course, participants will be exposed to interactive tutorials and 100 video cases demonstrating use of perioperative TEE to assist in hemodynamic management of patients with many types of cardiac pathology.
