Course Description

Cardiovascular technologists deal with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diseases of the heart (cardiac) or blood vessels (vascular). They perform cardiovascular examination and therapeutic procedures through the use of specific high-technology equipment and at the direction of qualified physicians, to create an easily definable data from which correct anatomic and physiologic diagnosis may be developed for each patient. Cardiovascular technologists play an integral role in the treatment process, applying their judgement, analytical thinking and problem solving skills in the process of obtaining accurate diagnostic information. The undergraduate programme leading up to the award of a Bachelor in Cardiovascular Technology (Hons) from Management and Science University (MSU) has been designed according to the recommendations of the community of cardiovascular technologists via the Malaysian Society of Cardiovascular Technology. With a curriculum designed for current clinical needs, qualified and experienced lecturers from both clinical and academic research backgrounds, knowledge transfer through projects and research based activities, students are well prepared for a career in healthcare.
