Course content

The teaching team for the MSc Cardiology and Stroke programme has a medical lead for cardiology and a medical lead for stroke medicine. They both are senior doctors who practice within the National Health Service. The course provides students with the opportunity to study all aspects of clinical cardiology and stroke medicine. The focus is on clinical assessment and clinical decision-making. This includes the investigation, interpretation, intervention and management of a range of cardiac and stroke related conditions..

We welcome interest from junior doctors with career intentions in stroke or cardiology, general practitioners with special interest as well as acute medicine or emergency medicine physicians who want to enhance their understanding of stroke or cardiology. We also welcome interest from clinical nurse specialists and other healthcare professionals working in cardiology and stroke or emergency or acute medicine.

How is the programme structured?

The MSc Cardiology and Stroke is a modular programme. Some of the modules are compulsory and some are optional. Learning may be shared in some core modules with healthcare professionals on other clinical programmes in Postgraduate Medicine.
