Are you or is someone you know exploring a new career? Cardiovascular technology (CVT) is a rewarding field that helps improve the quality of life for patients with heart or vascular disease. Atlantic Health System has an accredited CVT school located at Morristown Medical Center that’s currently accepting new applicants. All students who complete our program – the only one in the state with three clinical tracks – receive a diploma and are eligible to sit for their registry exam.
