For a Career in Cardiac Sciences

BCIT’s Cardiac Science programs prepare you for a career helping to diagnose and care for patients with heart disease. Cardiac Science Technologists typically work directly with patients, in multidisciplinary teams, and use sophisticated diagnostic technologies.

For practitioners with recent clinical experience, you can increase your skills with our advanced certificate. It’s the only credential of its type in North America and it prepares you for a specialized career in cardiovascular labs, electrophysiology labs, and cardiac device clinics.
