MS in Cardiovascular Perfusion - Post Professional

Bulletin

Joseph Sistino, Ph.D., Division Director

The program allows working perfusionists who have completed an AC-PE accredited perfusion education program the opportunity to advance their educational and professional goals. 

New technologies and surgical procedures require that practicing certified cardiovascular perfusionists (C.C.P.) have an increased knowledge base for managing both neonates and elderly patients with complex medical conditions as well as the application of new cardiac assist devices. Leadership skills are becoming more essential as an increased number of practicing cardiovascular perfusionists attain leadership roles.

This graduate level program will provide a plan of study that includes coursework and a capstone research project that is designed to address these requirements. Courses will be available through a variety of distance learning technologies (asynchronous online activities, independent reading, and projects).  

Accreditation

The MUSC Cardiovascular Perfusion Program is accredited by the Commission of Allied Health Education (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of the Accreditation Committee for Perfusion Education (ACPE).
