Frequently Asked Questions

What is the goal of CAMP?
CAMP Mission: Improving patient outcomes and quality of life with supported high-risk PCI by utilizing best practices, techniques and technologies to enable safer, more effective and complete revascularization.
Do I have to follow the curriculum exactly in order or can I test out of some courses?
There will be digital course requirements for physicians to complete with an option to test out of each module. We recommend that a physician follow the educational path in sequence starting with Foundational, then Essentials, then Advanced, culminating with the Masters learning modules.
Will there be a “certification” or other recognition if I complete all courses
Yes. A physician will receive a certificate of completion after completing each level. As you progress through the curriculum, you will receive advanced permissions to get additional information and will have additional access to our CAMP resources and faculty.
Will Abiomed have large bore access courses and other symposia at major conferences like ACC, SCAI and TCT?
Yes, we will still offer stand-alone access & closure courses. This year, we will have them in conjunction with major tradeshows.
How much does it cost to participate in CAMP?
CAMP is a series of educational courses both digital and instructor led that are offered by Abiomed. There are no registration fees for the courses, but an attendee may need to incur some travel/hotel costs. These costs will be reimbursed after the program based on our policy for educational courses.
Is CAMP open to physicians outside the US?
Abiomed will be launching a CAMP curriculum specific to physicians outside the US in 2021. For now, the instructor led courses are for US based physicians only. The digital educational modules are available to all physicians who register and receive a username and password.
Is CAMP open to medical providers who aren’t physicians (nurses, cath lab techs, etc.)?
Yes. There will be on-line modules specific for health care providers who are not physicians. Some instructor led courses are also appropriate for health care providers who are not physicians but part of the heart team and delivery of care.
