Letters from a Perfusionist in Germany: Coming to America…


Editor’s Note:

Hi Guys,

I got this letter from a perfusionist in Germany.

I don’t know if the ABCP recognizes Perfusion Certification from Europe.  I guess the question is- can he sit for the ABCP boards?


Hi Frank, hope u can help.. i want to immigrate to the states after i finish my Master degree in Biomedical Engineering. i was thinking to continue career in the medical industry (Cardiovascular Engineerinrg) but my real passion is the OR thats why i want to continue my career in Perfusion.

Does the american board reconigze my european board certification (ECCP) or i have to review and do the american board exam? hope to hear from you.
