MSOE’s Master of Science in Perfusion (MSP) program is designed for full-time graduate students. A clinical perfusionist operates extra-corporeal circulation (meaning blood outside of the body) equipment during medical situations where it is necessary to support or replace the patient’s cardiopulmonary/circulatory functions, such as during open-heart surgery.

As with most allied health professionals, advances in biomedical technology have broadened the scope of responsibilities of perfusionists. The rapid and proper application of these technologies demands that the clinical perfusionist of today and tomorrow possess strong academic and clinical skills involving many areas of biomedical technology.
