If you are interested in becoming a Proctor for Central Line Training with MedStar SiTEL, please contact the Central Line Training Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proctors have credentialed clinicians (MD/DO, NP/PA) that have extensive experience in central line placement. Proctors are volunteers but receive a compensatory stipend.
Proctors are paid for practice (CS 026244) and testing (CS 026263) sessions. Proctors for ad-hoc practice sessions will not be paid for through this program.
- Proctors must have access to MedStar SiTELMS.
- Proctors must enroll in and watch the online course required of all trainees:
- MedStar Health Central Line Education for Physicians and Advanced Care Practitioners (OD 022380)
- Proctors must watch the “Train-the-Proctor” video to familiarize themselves with the testing requirements and layout of the testing day in the Simulation Center:
- Train-the-Proctor Course for MedStar Health’s Central Line Education for Physicians and Advanced Care Practitioners (Od-012922)
- Proctors must be familiar with the testing grading checklists (Effective February 2019)
- Proctors must attend the Proctor Training Course with one of the designated “Lead” Proctors (As scheduled)
What to Expect During Testing
At the start of each testing session, each proctor will be given a handout or an Ipad on the grading requirements, the flow of the session, and limitations of the mannequins. It is encouraged to review the handout ahead of coming to the simulation center.
It is possible a learner will pass one station and fail another station. Proctors should debrief the learner at the conclusion of each station, and tell them if they have passed or failed in addition to what they missed. If a learner fails any station, they cannot re-test the same day. The learner must coordinate re-testing with their program director.
Maintaining Proctor Certification
Proctors should review the online modules annually to keep up to date with any changes in protocol or MedStar Health requirements.
