The objectives of this 3 year undergraduate program with 6 months internship is to prepare cardiovascular technologists in the knowledge, skills and behavior learning domains for invasive and non invasive cardiology. The candidate qualifies as a cardiac technologists and is equipped with the necessary skills to assist the cardiologist in non invasive (Electro cardiography, Doppler, pulmonary function test, stress testing(TMT), use of ultra sound equipment, cardiac monitoring , echo cardiography, angiogram and invasive (Catheterization lab) balloon angio plasty and other procedural domains of the department of cardiology.

Career, As a cardiac care technician, are eligible to work in hospitals set up as cardiac sonagraphers, vascular technologists after adequate training. Emphasis on cardiac health due to the fact that health related illness are responsible for mortality and morbidity.

NIMS Medicity is proud to have a separate well equipped cardiology wing styled Heart Foundation, the only one of its kind in Kerala, constructed under Freeman White Company, California headed by Dr. Madhu Sreedharan. The Heart Foundation is rich in ultra modern lifesaving equipments and is intended to save life at any humanly possible condition. The quality of treatment offered is un compromised.

To make heart treatments more accessible even to those who belong to financially backward class, the expenses that may be incurred for the cardiac checkups and surgeries have been reduced than that of the government rates. NIMS Heart foundation has done 16500 angiograms, 6500 angioplasties and also 4800 bypass surgeries in the short span of time, since 2006. This is probably the highest rate of surgeries in this short span of time.

Apart from this, a special project named Heart to Heart has been introduced. We are proud to announce that Padmashree Bharath Mammootty is our project ambassador to the project Heart to Heart. With the help of Mammootty fans association we provide free heart surgeries to those who are under the poverty line. Under Heart to Heart project 250 open heart surgeries were done successfully. All those 250 families have gone back to normal life with new hopes and aspirations.
