Course summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine provides a unique integrated approach to preventative cardiovascular medicine and focuses on applying scientific principles to direct patient care. Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine is a rapidly evolving branch of medicine involved in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, coronary heart disease and peripheral vascular disease. Run with the collaborative partner Diploma MSc, the course creates professionals who can independently assess, evaluate and disseminate the evidence base related to Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine.

It will develop problem solving and clinical skills together with preparing students to take a leadership role in this medical area. You will be able to demonstrate advanced knowledge and competence; deliver management strategies for the investigation and treatment of patients at increased cardiovascular risk; develop and deliver interventions for the wider population and safely use preventative cardiovascular approaches in specific cases. On successful completion, you could go on to study the MSc Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine.

Assessment

The obesity and weight management course puts assessment at the heart of learning by using clinical scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment, embedding assessment within the learning process.

Careers

The course promotes and enhances professional skills and knowledge among its students that have direct relevance and application to the demands of their working roles. There is increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, with increasing specialisation.
