Course content

Cardiac physiologists record and analyse physiological data to diagnose and treat cardiac disease. They play an essential role in healthcare, saving many lives and improving many more. Cardiac physiologists in hospitals deal with patients first hand, meaning they need not only highly specialised knowledge and excellent analytical abilities but good people skills.

Why study the MSc/PGDip Clinical Physiology (Cardiology) at Middlesex University?

Our biomedical and biological science courses have a burgeoning international reputation, due to our world-class research in areas including biomarkers, public health and biomodelling. The university is home to the Centre for Investigative and Diagnostic Oncology, which has pioneered techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment, including our breakthrough in the development of a vaccine for bladder cancer.

Our teaching and research facilities surpass those at some UK medical schools, and our course will provide you with both in-depth practical experience and comprehensive, up- to-date theoretical knowledge. Our specialist clinical physiology laboratory houses a wide range of diagnostic equipment and is run by experienced practitioners. As well as attending practical classes in the lab, you'll be able to use it for independent study and research, and will have access to specialist journals.

Please note: this programme will not lead to a qualification as a Healthcare Scientist (Cardiac Physiologist). For further information please follow the links below:
