The Michener Institute has announced that it is launching a Master of Science in Cardiovascular Perfusion (CVP) program. The program, which will start in September 2022, will train students with the aim of addressing Canada’s shortage of cardiovascular perfusionists. “A Master’s Degree Program is an investment in the future of the Cardiovascular Perfusion profession. Having research embedded in our programming equates to better clinical practices through ongoing development of evidence that will constantly improve patient care, and perfusion leadership presence interprofessionally and institutionally,” said Canadian Society of Clinical Perfusion President Maggie Savelberg. Michener says that this is the only CVP program in Ontario and the only Master of Science in CVP in Canada.
