Perfusionists are operating room specialists who conduct cardiopulmonary bypass. That is, they pump and oxygenate the blood of patients whose hearts or lungs are stopped, usually during open heart surgery.

The clinical perfusion program accepts ten students each year. Graduates are eligible to take the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion's National Certification Examination.
