Cardiac technology is an allied health profession specifically focused on the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac and vascular disease.  Cardiac Technology Specialists  (CTS) are highly skilled professionals qualified to provide patient care by using diagnostic (Echo) technology or by assisting with cardiac catheterization either diagnostically or through intervention.

The Cardiac Technology (CT) program at Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University ’s College of Applied Medical Sciences (CAMS) was established during the 2008-2009 academic year.  The program is four years long, including the Preparatory year, and is divided into eight semesters.  The student will graduate from the Department after completing 142 credit hours followed by an internship year (12 months) in the University hospital or any other facility that has been approved by the University.
