Cardiac Electrophysiology Associate Degree
Monitor the heart’s electrical system while assisting in making critical diagnoses.
In a field that depends on technology and teamwork, cardiac electrophysiologists work closely with physicians to diagnose issues with the heart. They focus on the heart’s electrical activity: that activity is what keeps the heart beating and can provide key insight into abnormalities.
You’ll focus on technical knowledge and critical thinking to prepare to become an entry-level CEP and sit for a CEP certification exam. While at PA College, you’ll have access to clinical environments overseen by experienced professionals. We keep class sizes small to ensure you receive the one-on-one instruction you need to succeed.
Some applicants who are already credentialed or licensed health care professionals may be eligible for the certificate program
