Welcome to the Cardiovascular Perfusion program. We know your'e excited about beginning your graduate studies here at MUSC; we are equally excited you are joining us and are looking forward to your arrival!

Prior to your first day on campus in August, please read "King of Hearts: The True Story of the Maverick Who Pioneered Open Heart Surgery" by G. Wayne Miller. I firmly believe this is a must-read for anyone entering a career in cardiovascular perfusion.
