- Full-Length Streaming Sclerotherapy Online Course sent immediately upon registration.
- Participants must complete the Online Sclerotherapy Course and pass a post-test prior to the Live Hands-On date.
- At the Live Hands-On date, all protocols are reviewed in a live lecture review followed by a Q&A and Discussion session.
- All registered and qualified participants will have the opportunity to perform Sclerotherapy hands-on injections on vein simulators, and live patients if available. Participants who bring a model patient may also reserve a 20-minute one-on-one intensive hands-on session with the instructor. Only 3 of these private sessions are available for any live date. Any participant who does not have proper licensing to give therapeutic injections of prescription medication will be denied hands-on practice on live patients.
Only evidence-based protocols with an emphasis on safety will be taught. These are the protocols taught and featured in American College of Phlebology events and publications. You will be ready to practice this procedure safely and effectively at the end of our FAST TRACK(TM) training course. You can also refer to the online course component after the live date to further reinforce your learning.
The streaming course includes video clips of the procedure and links to downloadable, editable patient consents and forms. If you have any further questions about this course, please Email our Medical Director.

We typically retain only 10-20% of what we learn in a “cold” live lecture setting. When learning a new procedure, we cannot afford to forget this much when we treat our first patient. This is why we send you the complete course to watch at your own pace immediately once you register. All participants must watch the entire course along with the treatment videos and pass the post-test prior to attending the live Hands-On workshop date. The live Hands-On workshop typically has 6 or fewer attendees to maximize the time for Q&A and deeper discussion of the treatment protocols. Most attendees feel like an “expert” before the live session even begins. Over 98% of our attendees prefer FAST TRACK (TM) training and feel very confident after returning to their offices to perform their first treatment.
