Understanding B.Sc. Cardiovascular Technology (CVT)

The B.Sc. CVT program is designed to train students to assist cardiologists in diagnosing and treating cardiac and peripheral vascular diseases in patients of all ages. Through a comprehensive curriculum, students learn to monitor patients’ cardiac parameters during procedures in the catheterization laboratory (Cath lab), mastering basic and advanced life support skills.

One of the program’s highlights is the practical training students receive during their internship. Here, they gain hands-on experience assisting and independently performing simple and complex interventional procedures in the Cath lab. This immersive learning approach ensures that graduates are well-prepared to enter the workforce with confidence and competence.
