Cardiovascular Technology is a highly technical component of the Allied Health field. It is desirable that the student enter the Program with a strong foundation in English language skills, mathematics, and related sciences. Because of the increasing number of patients who speak a language other than English, a second-language proficiency is an asset.
The Cardiovascular Technology Program at Grossmont College accepts approximately 40 students each year as dictated by staffing, laboratory and instrumentation availability, and the number of clinical sites available for student assignments during the second year of training.
