Financial Aid for Cardiovascular Science Program

Geneva’s Cardiovascular Science (CVS) program is now offering a combined B.S./M.S. degree in cardiovascular sciences. Students have the opportunity to earn their B.S. in biology in three years on Geneva’s Beaver Valley campus, followed by two years of training at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute (IHVI) in Falls Church, Va. outside Washington DC. Students can also earn a certificate in cardiovascular sciences after one year of training or enter the M.S. program after graduating with their B.S. in biology or other related disciplines (e.g., BSN).  See the CVS web page for more information.
