Program Educational Objectives
The objectives of the MSP program are that, within one year of graduation:
- all graduates will become certified clinical perfusionists (CCPs).
- each graduating class will collectively score above the national average on the certification exam.
- all new graduates will be employed in the field of perfusion, if that is their desire.
- all graduates will report meeting the performance and behavioral standards needed in their profession.
- all employers will report satisfaction with the behavior and performance of the graduates.
The outcomes of the MSP program are that each student, at the time of graduation, will:
- demonstrate advanced knowledge in the areas of cardiovascular science.
- have acquired the clinical skills needed to provide quality perfusion services to the patient.
- be able to formulate, design, perform, analyze, and communicate the results of a research project.
- demonstrate initiative in their professional activities
