MAS FH in Cardiovascular Perfusion

The postgraduate course MAS FH in Cardiovascular Perfusion has been developed to enable qualified professionals in Cardiovascular Perfusion (CP) to achieve an officially recognised degree. In cardiac surgery, sophisticated techniques are being increasingly developed to support the functions of the heart and the lungs. Alongside the demand for detailed expertise, there is a tendency towards minimal-invasive procedures, which can be applied more often. This constantly changes the technical environment, the requirements and the relationship with patients. The course with its Certificate of Accreditation is conceptualised in order to fulfil to the requirements of the European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (EBCP)

The postgraduate course in Cardiovascular Perfusion is geared towards surgical practice and encourages and extends the competencies of the professional CP, respectively of the Cardiovascular Perfusion. The competencies are targeted to the work activity in the practice of heart-and-lung-support in the hospital and in the out-patient setting. The MA degree includes the certificate of the EBCP (European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion).

This national course is taught in English. All materials and documents are in process of being translated.
