How the Best Doctors, Nurses, and Mid-Levels Learn Sclerotherapy

Nobody learns how to treat spider veins of the legs in their basic medical or nursing education.  These cosmetic injection procedures do not belong to any one specialty or group of providers.  For over a decade, PracticalCME has provided inclusive hands-on training courses for all eligible practitioners.  It is our goal to provide you safe, evidence-based certification training before, during, and after the live hands-on training date.  And our physician faculty members will continue to support you while you transition from student to provider in these services.

With our unique FAST TRACK™ Sclerotherapy classes you are ready to practice your new procedure in 3 easy steps…

  1. Watch the narrated online content at your own pace.
  2. Attend the live review of the protocols, Q&A, and hands-on training (private one-on-one available on a patient you bring)
  3. Begin practicing and re-review the online content when necessary

Over 96% of our attendees rate our training for Sclerotherapy “excellent” and would recommend PracticalCME’s certification to a friend or colleague.

Why Choose PracticalCME?

Excellence in CME Training Since 2008

  • Jennifer Canesi, NPSclerotherapy Online Course

    I found the online sclerotherapy course to be excellent. I had taken a sclerotherapy course last year, but found it to be very inadequate. Your course covered everything I needed to know about the subject and I feel as though I as a practitioner will benefit greatly from it and my patients will be very thankful. I can honestly say it was money well spent.

  • Joseph Johnson, MDSclerotherapy

    The Sclerotherapy training was comprehensive, providing the newest and safest techniques. I also did private, hands-on training with the instructor that quickly brought me from novice to proficiency, leaving me confident that I could do this in my practice. This has been a lot of fun and is about twice as profitable as seeing regular patients. Results have been fantastic, and there is little cost involved in this technique. It is much more comfortable, effective and has fewer side effects than treatments with the laser I used to use.

  • Of all the CME courses I have taken in an effort to expand my medical practice, I can say without hesitation that PracticalCME's lectures have been the most well-presented, memorable, and enjoyable.

  • Tara WoodTara R Wood, DO

    The didactics and practical portion of the class were outstanding. I felt prepared to start cosmetic injections after the class. Everything was explained and taught so clearly. I am looking forward to other Practical CME classes

MD’s, DO’s can perform this procedure once trained in a CME-accredited training course.  NP’s, PA’s and RN’s can perform the sclerotherapy in most states under the supervision of an MD.

What is the deadline to register for the Cosmetic Sclerotherapy course?

Because PracticalCME Training is FAST TRACK(TM), this means you should budget at least 5 hours in advance of the live training date to watch the online program.  Therefore, it is recommended that you reserve your seat as early as possible to begin the online material.
