Cardiovascular Technology

CVT is one of the fastest growing fields in health care, and the need for cardiovascular technologists is expected to grow by almost 40 percent in the next decade alone. Cardiovascular technologists typically work with cardiac physicians to perform either non-invasive tests, such as electrocardiograms and sonograms, or invasive tests, such as cardiac catheterization. The Piedmont program focuses on non-invasive examination of the heart and major blood vessels. For students who already have a Bachelor degree in a Health Science field, the Piedmont program offers a separate track for earning a certificate in CVTE. Students holding an appropriate Associate of Science degree and having related work experience will also be considered for admission to the certificate program.

Piedmont College offers a four-year Bachelor of Science program in cardiovascular technology (CVTE) which accepts students for entry in the fall semester from January through March each year.  This four-year program begins on the Demorest Campus with three years of preparatory course work. For the fourth year, Piedmont has partnered with the Northeast Georgia Heart Center in Gainesville, which will provide specialized instruction and faculty for the program’s clinical portion. These faculty are technologists and cardiologists who practice at Northeast Georgia Medical Center and its satellite locations. (View Rack Card)
