Cardiovascular Perfusion Program New Student Information

Doctor Joseph Sistino

Dr. Joseph Sistino

Welcome to the Cardiovascular Perfusion program. We know that you are excited about getting to begin your graduate studies here at MUSC.

Prior to your first day on campus in August, please read King of Hearts: The True Story of the Maverick Who Pioneered Open Heart Surgery by G. Wayne Miller. I firmly believe this is a must-read for anyone entering a career in cardiovascular perfusion.

The Fall semester starts August 22nd 2018, classes end Friday, December 7th and finals week is December 10th to 14th.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

Again, congratulations, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Joseph J. Sistino, Ph.D., CCP, FPP
David Fitzegerald, MPH, CCP
Meghan Kirwan, MS, Student Services Coordinator
