The full-time, two year program (including the summer session) spans five consecutive semesters and is designed for students who have already completed approximately two or more years of college. Upon graduation, the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Cardiovascular Perfusion. The first two semesters are spent primarily in classroom instruction, while the remainder of the program focuses on clinical education. Clinical experience will consist of adult and pediatric rotations obtained at various affiliated hospitals. There is a minimum requirement of performing 75 perfusion cases in order to be eligible to enter the certification process. Clinical relocation may be necessary.

The Cardiovascular Perfusion curriculum offers a single concentration in Perfusion Technology, which involves preparation for knowledge-based and skillful clinical practice.

Important Notice: Participation in clinical experiences, rotations or fieldwork is a required part of the curriculum and a requirement for graduation. Clinical rotation and fieldwork sites may require a drug, criminal, and/or child abuse background check in order to permit participation in the program's clinical experience, rotation or fieldwork. Clinical rotation and fieldwork sites may deny a student's participation in the clinical experience, rotation or fieldwork because of a felony or misdemeanor conviction, failure of a required drug test, or inability to produce an appropriate health clearance, which would result in delayed graduation or in the inability to graduate from the program. Individuals who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor may be denied certification or licensure as a health professional. Information regarding individual eligibility may be obtained from the appropriate credentialing bodies. Drug and background checks will be done at the student's expense.
