About

The Clinical Perfusion program at Upstate Medical University SUNY accepts ten students each year. Graduates are eligible to take the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion's National Certification Examination.

Overview

Perfusionists are operating room specialists who conduct cardiopulmonary bypass. That is, they pump and oxygenate the blood of patients whose hearts or lungs are stopped, usually during open heart surgery.

Key Features 

  • In the Clinical Perfusion program from Upstate Medical University SUNY, we encourage students to observe an open-heart procedure at a medical center and conduct an informational interview with a clinical perfusionist.
  • Occasionally, perfusionists work outside the operating room, providing support for patients with circulatory failure.

  • Cardiovascular Perfusion Techniques 
  • Physiological Assessment
  • Selected Topics in Medical Physiology
