Candidates will be expected to hold a good first degree (normally at least an upper second or MBBS) from a UK university or an equivalent qualification if obtained outside the UK. For those who do not hold a first degree at the required level, a special case can be made if the student has demonstrated aptitude for the course through at least 3 years of high quality work experience in a relevant field of cardiovascular health.
8 of our modules are available as stand-alone short courses with attendance only or the option of M level assessments. These have been accredited with continuing medical education (CME points) by the Royal College of Physicians.
