The only programme of its kind to be offered in the South West region, the MSc Clinical Cardiac Science is designed to provide specialist knowledge within the areas of cardiac pathophysiology, diagnostics and technological advances in imaging alongside current and future treatment strands. The programme is delivered by experts in clinical cardiology and imaging within the South West with theoretical background and molecular mechanisms of disease taught by expert academics within the field.

This programme is ideal for medical students who wish to intercalate in a clinical specialism as well as being suited to students with relevant biomedical degrees who wish to go onto a PhD in the area of clinical cardiac science. The award focuses on training within the clinical cardiology discipline integrating the depth of detail and underpinning knowledge of cardiac disorders aligned with the diagnostics used in clinical assessments and inclusion of current treatment and management options for cardiac disorders.

Students will gain depth of detail and knowledge of normal and abnormal cardiac physiology, the technological detail and limitations of current diagnostic measurements in practice. Students on this programme will be given the opportunity to complete the Society for Cardiological Science and Technology (SCST) Certificate in electrocardiography (ECG) which upon successful completion, permits professional competency in recording and interpreting ECGs.
