It is the vision of the Cardiovascular Perfusion Program at McGovern Medical School to create a unique training environment and educational program in the field of cardiovascular perfusion (the only one of its kind in The University of Texas System) that will provide the breadth and depth of training that can be found only in the Texas Medical Center through our affiliation with Memorial Hermann’s Center for Advanced Heart Failure. The mission of  the Cardiovascular Perfusion Program at McGovern Medical School is to provide the highest quality of education and training in cardiovascular perfusion through an accredited post-baccalaureate certificate program that meets the State of Texas licensing and national accrediting agency requirements.
