2022 CMR Board Exam Review Course

The CMR Certification Examination Preparatory Course organized by the SCMR, is intended to align to the objectives for a new physician certification in cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) launched by the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement™ (APCA™). 

The Certification Board of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CBCMR) examination assesses candidates on their knowledge, skills and abilities in preparing patients for CMR studies, selecting appropriate protocols, conducting CMR studies in a spectrum of scenarios and interpreting the results, and performing post-processing tasks. For more information regarding the examination, please visit here.
