M.Sc. is Master of Science and it is a Post graduation degree in the field of Science with so many specializations and sub specializations. One of them is 'Cardiac Perfusion Technology' which is in high demand and is considered as a career oriented program. This course teaches all about perfusion technology which is to be performed as cardiovascular perfusion during cardiac surgery. These candidates are called as perfusionist after getting trained in this field.
These candidates are required in many well equipped modern surgical set ups like Valvular and complex congenital operations, CABG, etc. Candidates get theoretical as well as practical knowledge about the course through hands on experience.
Candidates holding bachelor degree in Cardiac Perfusion Technology (B.Sc. in Cardiac Perfusion Technology) are eligible for this course. It should be pursued from a recognized college with minimum 50% marks as an aggregate. Other related degrees including Science and Physics are also considered by some colleges.
For admission, the reputed institutes conduct entrance test and select the well performing candidates for admission. Some institutes offer direct admission on merit basis and in this case, candidates secured good marks in their graduation get admissions very easily. In all the cases, candidates need to submit their filled application for before last date.
It is 2 years long Post Graduation program which is to be completed in regular or full time mode. As it included lab sessions and hands on training, candidates cannot complete the same through distance learning mode.
These 2 years are divided into 4 equal semesters; each having 6 months duration.
Further Study options
After completion of M.Sc. in Cardiac Perfusion Technology, candidates having research aptitude should pursue PhD- a research based doctoral degree.
The course starts with basic details or we can say it is a revision part for candidates who have done their B.Sc. in Cardiac Perfusion Technology. But it is required for candidates from other fields of science. It teaches about Cardiology, an introduction to perfusion technology and Operation Theater, Cardiac surgery, etc. Once the basics are clear, candidates learn about pharmacology and cardiovascular drugs, Equipment for perfusion technology, pathology and physiology of perfusion, etc.
The later part of course includes topics like clinical application of perfusion technology, details of organ transplantation, Blood transfusion and conservation, hematology relevant to perfusion and many more.
Hospitals having surgical set up for cardiac surgeries, organ transplantation, blood transfusion, etc are requiring these candidates on regular basis.
