Cardiovascular Interventional Technology (CVIT)

The Cardiovascular Interventional Technology (CVIT) Program at UNMC allows students to obtain classroom and clinical experience related directly to vascular and interventional technology. Completion of an accredited Radiography program, ARRT certification in Radiography, and 27 specific college prerequisites are required for admission into the CVIT Program, which is offered as a post-primary certification modality at UNMC.

Members of the CVIT faculty include radiologic technologists with CVIT certification, interventional radiologists, nurses, and program directors that teach courses relating to their expertise.

Each semester consists of approximately 12-16 hours of course work and clinical rotations scheduled throughout the 12-month program.

After completion of the program, graduates are awarded a Bachelor Degree in Radiation Science Technology. Students are eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification in Cardiac Interventional Radiography and/or Vascular Interventional Radiography if the post-primary certification eligibility requirements are met. Requirements can be found in the ARRT Certification Handbook on the ARRT web site.
