Welcome to the site created by perfusionists and for perfusionists.  Whether a perfusion education student, novice perfusionist or seasoned clinician, this site has been created to provide you a novel, convenient and efficient means of obtaining continuing perfusion education.  Participating in these e-learning activities allows the user the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) at a fraction of the cost of attending a face-to-face medical meeting. This perfusion education venue can be utilized from home, school, work, or the local coffee shop.  It is truly perfusion education that comes to you...wherever and whenever that may be.


The mission of perfusioneducationonline.com is to provide the international perfusion community a web-based resource for quality perfusion education opportunities relating to the field of cardiovascular perfusion and allied technologies.
