A graduate of UPMC Shadyside School of Cardiovascular Perfusion, he initially had his sights set on pharmacy school, but after working in a pharmacy to gain experience, he discovered the day-to-day work life was not a good fit, “I was bored out of my mind,” Augie said. Although the career wasn’t for him, he did connect with a pharmacist who urged him to look into surgery as a more exciting field.
“After some research into cardiac surgery, I discovered perfusion and never looked back.”
For Augie, one of the most important skills of a perfusionist is to be adaptable. “You can’t be too complacent, as each patient and surgeon bring something different to the table. You have to adjust to new ways of doing things at each of the places you go. There are so many ways of doing things–just because something is different than what you’re used to, doesn’t mean that it’s wrong.”
He advises all new perfusionists to keep learning, all the time, and not get stuck doing things “one way.”
