SCA-On-CUE subject 4 follows on from the knowledge obtained in subject 1 and 3, and is focused on the assessment of ventricular function using echocardiography. You start with a couple of building block tutorials on the cardiac cycle and left ventricular systolic function pathophysiology. This is followed by tutorials on the evaluation of left ventricular systolic and diastolic function, right ventricle systolic function and atrial function and pressure estimation. There is a tutorial on the management of diastolic function, and another on basic congenital heart disease. The subject is completed with a further 40 TTE and 15 TEE case studies. At the end of subject 4, and the successful completion of all assessments including the examinations, level 1 will be complete. Click here for Course Brochure
The course instruction builds upon previous knowledge so it is best to complete the subjects in order. For the SCA-On-CUE certification, all subjects 1 – 4 need to be completed and satisfactorily passed.
This is an online course. Upon receipt of payment, the student will receive a “Getting Started” email with instructions on how to access the course materials.
Students have the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Program materials can be accessed through the iTeachU app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the program materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed even when offline (however internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials). Program materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.

The SCA encourages medically qualified applicants who possess qualifications sufficient to practice as a medical practitioner; these include MD, MBBS, MBChB or equivalent degrees. Learners will need to be competent in English to complete the courses.
Assessment Components: The self-assessments and examinations are completed via an online web-based system. For self-assessment questions, once completed, the screen will refresh with the answers and explanations.
Once all self-assessments and case studies are submitted examinations can be done whenever you are ready. Examinations are 50 multiple choice questions per subject which are conducted online.
Certificate Upon Completion: Upon meeting the assessment components for each course level a completion certificate will be issued from SCA and iTeachU. For individual subjects, a statement of activities will be issued. If four individual subjects are completed from one level a certificate of completed will be issued.
