Jobst Vascular Laboratory
Access to the well-established Jobst Vascular Laboratory on the campus of ProMedica Toledo Hospital offers Jobst vascular medicine fellows a strong education advantage. There, our fellows gain vital skills performing and evaluating non-invasive vascular diagnostic procedures. Learning in this well-appointed facility is an invaluable tool for preparing for the Registered Physician Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) exam.
The Jobst Vascular Laboratory provides more than 20,000 inpatient and outpatient examinations per year and is approved by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. The Jobst laboratory has a long record of major research activity that has produced many publications and multiple scientific achievement awards at national meetings. For a large number of vascular conditions, the non-invasive diagnostic laboratory provides sufficient information for clinical decision-making and documentation of patient outcomes. As you gain vascular experience, you will become proficient in all aspects of laboratory practice.
Earning RPVI certification is required at the end of the first year of this vascular medicine fellowship. Your time in the Jobst Vascular Laboratory will provide you with the credential-qualifying experience in vascular ultrasound interpretation.
