Darren Powell, SCC Instructor

Darren Powell(spacer)Thank you for visiting my site. I have been involved in the cardiovascular field for almost 20 years now. I have been witness to dramatic changes in treatment options for patients suffering from the nation's number one killer, cardiovascular disease. There is extensive research ongoing to constantly improve the medication and devices we deploy into our patients' vascular systems. These range from metal stents to hold vascular walls up to gene therapy to deliver genetic encoding directly to the heart muscle. When you choose a career in this field, you will be on the front lines working with cardiologists in real life-and-death situations, just like on TV! One of the best rewards I get from my work with patients is the look on family members' faces when we bring a loved one back from the brink.

SCC's invasive cardiovascular technology program is very well respected in the field. Our graduates are heavily recruited even before they graduate. I am excited about the future in our profession and would be pleased to discuss your role. I can be reached by phone at (509) 533-7306 or e-mail DPowell@scc.spokane.edu.
