With our partnership institutions, the Health Care Sciences and Services Department of Immaculata University offers a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health with a concentration in Cardiac Electrophysiology. You will receive a strong science and liberal arts background from IU and clinical instruction and didactic coursework from affiliate institutions, which will prepare you for positions within the health care industry.
Cardiac electrophysiologists work as part of a team alongside physicians to help diagnose and provide treatment for patients who are experiencing issues such as abnormal heart rhythms and heart failure.
Cardiac technologists and technicians and vascular technologists typically work in hospital cardiovascular units or in private practices. Employment is expected to grow by 29 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than average for all occupations. As imaging technology evolves, medical facilities will use it to replace more invasive, costly procedures.
