ASA/SCA Basic Perioperative TEE Education Program


The Basic Perioperative TEE education program is a collaboration between the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists, designed for anesthesiologists, emergency medicine, critical care physicians, researchers and other health care professionals with an interest in anesthesiology.

The Basic Perioperative TEE program has been designed to provide a thorough knowledge base in Basic Perioperative TEE and helps fulfill the education component of the Extended CME Pathway for the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) certification.

100 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™ are available upon completion of all 100 cases.

The Basic Perioperative TEE program focuses on basic hemodynamic state, ventricular function and valve pathology, which has been categorized into those that are likely to cause hemodynamic compromise or those that may not. By the end of this program, the student will be exposed to a wide variety of cardiac pathology.
