Geneva Offers First Cardiovascular Technology Graduate Program in the Nation
Date:7/28/2008

BEAVER FALLS, Pa., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Anticipating the needs of the future, Geneva College will launch the first Cardiovascular Technology (CVT) graduate degree program in the nation.

Drawing on Geneva's long-standing affiliation with INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., the program offers students a M.S. degree in Cardiovascular Sciences. Geneva's incoming freshmen will now have the option of obtaining a B.S. (in four years) or a B.S./M.S. degree (in five years) in CVT.

A major goal of the program, according to CVT Program Coordinator Dr. David Essig, is that the M.S. trained student will become recognized as "cardiologist's assistant" much like the physician's assistant.

Geneva has offered a bachelor's of science degree in CVT through INOVA for the past 30 years. In the current program, students who earn the B.S. work with cardiologists to diagnose and perform therapeutic procedures on diseased blood vessels. Most procedures are directed towards coronary arteries which, when occluded by advanced atherosclerosis, can lead to heart attack and death. The effectiveness of these procedures has not only saved lives but has lessened dependence on the coronary bypass surgery. Under this program, which is one of two in the nation granting B
