Hands-On Training Disclosure
Empire maintains very strict criteria in regards to who may perform any medical procedure during the training. . Empire requires that all participants provide a copy of their current medical license (MD, DO, DDS, DMD, RN, NP, PA), along with a copy of a current driver’s license or other legal form of Identification to our staff PRIOR to participation.
Empire offers training on volunteer patients (typically other physicians and professionals involved in the workshops. There is no cost to these individuals) as well as custom simulated models for unlicensed professionals and others. This latter option is a significant convenience for those who are not yet licensed in the US but may still acquire the necessary training.
Depending on the specific workshop, training is provided by either physicians or other expert trainers on a given topic, however, all training is supervised by licensed, qualified Physicians at ALL times and our objective is to not only provide the highest level of education but also to uphold protocols that will ultimately ensure the safety of all those participating. The training provided by Empire is maintained under a controlled and very strict environment and participants who cannot follow protocol or deviate from predetermined guidelines will not be permitted to participate in the program.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to understand and adhere to the laws of your individual state regarding licensure, regulations as far as what qualifications are needed to perform a procedure in the state, and any other laws specific to your state. Prior to the hands on portion of the training, all participants are provided consent forms, disclosure forms, and documentation that asks about licensure and qualifications. Any misrepresentation of this information to Empire may be regarded as a felony so we encourage you to be mindful of this documentation
