Cardiac Electrophysiology Associate Degree
Cardiac Electrophysiologist (CEP) technologists diagnose and treat problems with the heart’s electrical system.
Get the education and skills you need to work alongside physicians, diagnosing and treating patients with heart issues. You’ll learn in a hands-on setting alongside working professionals to develop technical knowledge, critical thinking skills and professional ethics. We keep class sizes small to ensure you receive the one-on-one instruction you need to succeed.
Upon program completion, you’ll be ready to take on the responsibilities of an entry-level electrophysiology technologist. You’ll also be qualified to sit for the CEP certification to become a registered cardiovascular electrophysiology specialist (RCES).
Our cardiac electrophysiology degree is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the Cardiovascular Technology Committee on Accreditation. See more accreditation information.
