Course content

Learn the necessary skills to function in a modern biomedical/clinical environment specialising in cardiology, and will be relevant to researchers, day-to-day NHS hospital practice and general practice.

The incidence of cardiovascular disease has been increasing worldwide.

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence-based practice.

The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles. Our aim will be to develop these to publication with you if suitable.

The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Cardiology.

If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.
