While the most common reason doctors train under Dr. Poon is to earn their ACCF/AHA Level 2 certification in cardiac imaging, we can tailor your training to help you achieve certification at any level, to earn AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™, or simply for professional development.

Level 2 Certification
In general, to qualify for your ACCF/AHA Level 2 certification, you must have 100 mentored reads and 50 live reads of CT scans. Under Dr. Poon’s instruction, this currently requires one week (5 days) of training.
