The B.Sc. in Cardiovascular Perfusion is a study program for nurses, surgical assistants and individuals in related medical assistant work who would like to train to become cardiac perfusionists. The cardiac perfusionist has an interdisciplinary role in the surgical treatment of cardiovascular patients.
