Course content

Designed primarily for existing healthcare practitioners, this degree covers non-invasive methods in cardiopulmonary exercise testing to accurately assess the performance of the heart and lungs of patients at rest and during exercise.

A distinctive and integral feature of the MSc is the focus on both in-depth practical experience and comprehensive, up-to-date knowledge. Students will study key concepts in leadership and management, as well as legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research and clinical practice. You will also gain a solid grounding in research methodologies required for biomedical research.

Our industry-experienced tutors place an emphasis on work-based experience and candidates are normally required to work in a cardiology non-invasive department.

Run by experienced practitioners, our specialist laboratory houses a wide range of diagnostic equipment, which you can access not only during classes, but also for independent study and research.
