To become a perfusionist, you must first complete a four-year college degree, taking course work in general and organic chemistry, general and advanced biology, and physics. Once you have a bachelor’s degree, you can apply to a master’s program in cardiovascular perfusion. The two-year program includes both classroom and clinical experiences. After graduating from an accredited perfusion program, you will be qualified to sit for the certification examination of the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion.
