This course is accredited by The National School of Healthcare and Science, The Society for Cardiological Science and Technology and The Registration Council for Clinical Physiology. Students will gain the scientific, clinical, and technical knowledge needed to provide specialised care to people living with or suspected of having cardiac disease.
Studying the anatomy and physiology of the heart, together with the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, you will combine in-depth academic work with practical clinical skills in a range of specialised healthcare settings. Cardiac Physiology is an exciting and rapidly developing field that requires a high level of responsibility and problem-solving ability. As a cardiac physiologist, you will be expected to carry out some work that used to be in the remit of doctors and there are many opportunities for specialist role extension as your career progresses.
On graduation, you will be eligible to join the voluntary register with the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists and enter the workplace as an independent practitioner.
