Entry requirements

We welcome applications from graduates with a good honours degree, or an equivalent qualification, in a health or science-based subject.

Applicants normally have a background in clinical physiology but those from other healthcare professions (e.g. registered nurse, clinical exercise physiologist, physiotherapist and medical practitioners) are also welcomed to apply.

We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience in clinical physiology.

Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.

Course content

Taught by industry-recognised experts, this course will enhance your clinical practice and expand your theoretical knowledge in the fields of cardiac rhythm management and clinical electrophysiology. Teaching covers a breadth of subjects, from advanced signal processing to biomedical ethics and law — providing a solid grounding in research methodologies, experimental design and statistics.

A central objective of the course is to enable students to critically evaluate the legal requirements for human experiments and ethical issues relating to research with human subjects and human tissue. You will acquire in-depth knowledge of the technologies used in diagnostics and research, solving complex problems related to disease investigation. With a significant leadership and management component, the course will also help you understand and apply the principles of health and safety, quality control, research and statistical methods in their professional lives.

This course is designed for healthcare practitioners, including physicians, nurses and physiologists, already working in the field of cardiology, particularly cardiac rhythm management and electrophysiology.

Suitable for graduates who are interested in a research or an academic career.
