Cardiovascular Tech Schools and Colleges in the U.S.
Cardiovascular techs are responsible for medical administrative tasks as well as helping a physician with vascular and cardiac diagnoses. Training programs for prospective cardiovascular techs include an associate's degree, which is most commonly chosen, and a bachelor's degree in cardiovascular technology.
How to Select a Cardiovascular Tech School
An advantage to an associate's degree is that is takes less time to complete and is much less expensive than a bachelor's degree program. In contrast, a bachelor's degree program can take up to four years to complete.
Consider the following when looking for cardiovascular tech schools:
- Students will want to consider which degree program they want to pursue.
- Courses common to associate's and bachelor's programs should include cell biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry, physiology and genetics.
- Prospective students can look for programs that offer clinical experiences or an internship to gain practical experience.
