Course summary

Overview Why study Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology) with us Cardiac physiology skills are in high demand, and our specialist healthcare course gives you the expertise, skills and practical experience to enter the field of healthcare science. Covering everything from diagnostics and monitoring to analytical and intervention procedures, you’ll gain an expert understanding of the heart, how it functions, and how to provide treatment to patients of all ages. Through a mix of virtual and on campus laboratory work and industry placements, you’ll also develop your expertise in echocardiography, pacemaker implantation, exercise stress testing, electrocardiograms (ECGs) and blood pressure measurement. In our partnership with Saracens Rugby Club, you’ll have access to the fantastic resources at StoneX Stadium, including the brand new £23 million redevelopment project of the West Stand which offers state-of-the-art facilities as a top educational and high performance centre for teaching and research excellence. With some of the most advanced equipment in the UK, you will be able to utilise the new specialist spaces, simulation suites, specialist labs, plus much more. This course is accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science. Build your professional skills We’ve developed our course to meet the demands of the Department of Health's Modernising Scientific Careers programme. This means you’ll develop the specific skills that are in short supply – and high demand – within the field. You’ll develop your practical skills and gain valuable industry experience by spending 50 weeks in a work experience placement within NHS cardiac physiology departments. You’ll use our state-of-the-art laboratories to put your skills into practice and develop the confidence to use the latest scientific equipment. Our graduates have gone on to become cardiac physiologists employed by the NHS and in private organisations, including Harley Street clinic, Huddersfield NHS, Kingston Hospital and Royal Brompton among many others. We’ll give you the support you need to succeed During your course, you’ll get personalised support from your Personal Tutor, Student Learning Assistant, and Graduate Academic Assistant. Their first-hand experience in your subject area means they understand how to best support you.
