B.Sc in Cardiovascular technology (B.Sc-CVT)

Programme Overview

Duration: 3 Years | Programme code: 100207

B. Sc. in Cardiovascular technology (B.Sc-CVT) is a 3 year regular course program designed to cover all aspects of cardiovascular disease management and care. It involves learning of complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that involve use of various equipments, computer hardware, tools, machines and pharmacological agents. This program enables students to acquire skills for management of various cardiac disorders. Students will be trained to apply specialized occupational theory, skills and concepts to work independently as qualified cardiovascular technologist and becomes an integral member of the cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology laboratory teams. The CVT’s primary role is to perform, at the direction of a qualified physician, technical procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular injury and disease.
