This innovative course is designed to provide you with education and training in cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep sciences, and is particularly designed for those of you who are interested in disease processes, diagnosis and improving the quality of life of patients. If so, this might be the course for you, especially if you would like to work hands-on with people, rather than in a laboratory. Following successful completion of your first year, you will be able to apply to transfer onto our accredited BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Physiological Science) practitioner training programme (having satisfied Disclosure and Barring Service and Occupational Health checks). This course has a work-based placement embedded throughout your study, which will allow you to undertake the practical training associated with the role of a healthcare scientist. The first placement, taken at the end of your first year of study, following selection, involves practical training in cardiac physiology, respiratory and sleep science, and you can then choose to specialise in one discipline for the final two years. If you do not transfer at this stage you can continue with your study towards a degree in Medical Physiology & Diagnostics. You will follow one of two pathways, either Cardiovascular Physiology or Respiratory Physiology and Sleep Science. This will give you the essential skills for you to be able to work as a Healthcare Associate Practitioner, and gain experience in the workplace via this route. This may then allow you to become a practitioner via the newly developing recognition scheme, or it will allow you to apply for entry to the Scientist Training Programme.
