The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP)upon the recommendation of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Cardiovascular Technology(JRC-CVT) verified Eastern International College ’s Cardiovascular Technology (Adult Echocardiography) program to be in compliance with national standards and awarded initial accreditation. The Associate Degree in Cardiovascular Technology (CVT) programs at both the Belleville and Jersey City campuses are now both programmatically accredited by (CAAHEP).
Programmatic accreditation is not required for employment in many cases, but its existence is a further indication that the program meets the standards of the profession, so it could enhance employment opportunities for graduates. The programmatic accreditation can allow graduates to sit for some credentialing exams immediately upon graduation.
The CVT program at Eastern International College prepares the student to perform non-invasive diagnostic examinations of the heart and/or blood vessels at the request or direction of a physician in Adult Echocardiography. The CVT program teaches the student the essential theoretical and hands-on knowledge to compete for entry-level positions in the field.
