Course summary

Overview

The only programme of its kind in the UK and Europe, our MSc is taught by world-leading experts from the Centre for Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions and Sports Cardiology at St George’s NHS Foundation Trust – one of the UK’s top multidisciplinary clinics dedicated to sudden cardiac death prevention and one of few centres globally specialising in sports cardiology.

Traditional teaching is delivered through a variety of methods such as lectures, course-specific seminars and small group sessions. You will also participate in self-directed study and wider reading, as well as individual and group practical sessions.

This is a highly practical and interactive course where you will have the opportunity to review hundreds of real-life cases and their investigations, including ECGs, echocardiograms, exercise tests and cardiopulmonary exercise tests, ECG monitors, cardiac MRIs and more advanced cardiac investigations. You’ll have access to state-of-the-art equipment used by cardiac physiologists, such as ECG, echocardiography, cardiopulmonary exercise machines and cardiac MRIs.

You’ll learn how to treat young patients and top-level athletes, which has previously included footballers from Premier League teams such as Chelsea and Tottenham, the England rugby squad and the British Olympic squad.

Our MSc Sports Cardiology aims to address the lack of structured training in the field and enhance the qualifications of physicians, physiologists, physiotherapists, nurses and sports scientists who are committed to training in cardiology, sports medicine or exercise physiology by providing them with a unique degree and highly sought-after set of skills.

Our long-standing collaboration with major sporting bodies, clubs and charitable organisations and the participation of key figures from the industry offers the chance to network and explore the prospect of potential employers. You will gain a good understanding of the needs of such organisations and receive career advice from potential employers.

Successful completion of our master’s courses will set you apart from the competition and provide you with unique employment opportunities within national health systems, sporting organisations and charitable organisations dedicated to sport and prevention of sudden cardiac death.

Students can exit with PGCert & PGDip awards.
