Cardiovascular Perfusion Captioned Video

"Some perfusion schools just do academic work. Not here. We start off observing in the OR and doing academic work. Then we start doing the perfusion work. It's intense, but someone's always watching you. They won't let you do anything wrong. They don't expect you to know everything. You're supposed to ask questions." —T. Patel

Mission and Goals

The educational and career goals for the Clinical Perfusion program are:

The MS Degree in Clinical Perfusion will produce competent entry- level perfusionists in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning domains who have demonstrated excellence with a professional specialty or biomedical research. Graduates will be eligible to both apply to take the national certification examinations offered by the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion and also to apply for a license as a Perfusionist in all license-issuing states including New York.
