Cardiovascular Perfusion Technology

Shadow a Perfusionist

Shadowing offers the applicant the ability to submerge themselves into the clinical setting of the clinical perfusionist.  An applicant may wish to shadow more than one case to gain a better understanding of the role of a clinical perfusionist.   During their shadowing experience, an applicant should gain information about the profession with regards to the time requirements, responsibilities, and stresses of a clinical perfusionist.  The Admission Committee requires all applicants of the Cardiovascular Perfusion Technology Program to shadow a clinical perfusionist at least once.  The application process requires the shadowing form to be completed and returned with the application information. An applicant should be prepared to discuss their shadowing experience with the Admission Committee if he/she is invited for an interview and campus tour. PLEASE NOTE: You are NOT REQUIRED TO SHADOW AT VANDERBILT. Be sure to check into shadowing opportunities at your local hospital.
