The Department of Perfusion Technology provides students with both the scientific knowledge as well as the clinical experience in order to make them effective and successful perfusion technologists. In the challenging, expanding profession of perfusion technology, today's perfusion technologist must be able to meet the daily demands of the operating room, adapt to new technologies and uses for the extracorporeal circuit, and be part of a profession growing beyond its traditional roles in cardiovascular surgery which now encompasses other surgical and non-surgical specialties requiring the use of extracorporeal circuits, support devices or blood salvaging capabilities.
