About Clinical Physiology
Masters degrees in Clinical Physiology give postgraduates the chance to undertake advanced study of the human body’s physiological systems and techniques for measuring their normal and abnormal function. They also investigate how these systems can be utilised in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases (such as stem cell therapy).
Related subjects include Clinical Exercise Physiology and Human & Applied Physiology. Entry requirements normally involve an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Sport Science, Biology or Medicine.
Applied Physiology explores a whole range of systems, functions and behaviours of the human body within a clinical setting, in order to understand a variety of diseases and abnormalities, how to diagnose them and how to treat them.
Due to the number of systems within the body, you may choose to specialise in a particular area (respiration, circulation, digestion, excretion, reproduction or neuroscience, for example). You could build your expertise in treatments such as gastric band surgery, developing new treatments for asthma, preventing strokes, or even using stem cells to treat certain cancers.
As well as roles in medicine, you may explore careers in physiotherapy and sports rehabilitation, or research within medical institutes and charities.
