Special Procedures Radiology

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 VI and CI certification, interventional radiologists, nurses, clinical coordinator, and program director that teach courses relating to their expertise.

After completion of the program, graduates are awarded a Bachelor Degree in Medical Imaging & Therapeutic Sciences or Post-Baccalaureate Professional Certificate in Cardiovascular Interventional Technology. Graduates are eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification in Cardiac Interventional and/or Vascular Interventional, if the post-primary certification eligibility requirements are met. Requirements can be found in the ARRT Certification Handbook on the ARRT web site.
