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.

Why Study Cardiovascular Disease with us?

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.

What will I learn?

Our modules investigate in detail the likely causes and effects of cardiovascular disease as well as the various complications and treatments. You will review current guidelines and their evidence base in the therapeutic management of cardiovascular disease, and explore potential new therapies.

Seminars and tutorials will be held with various healthcare professionals and clinical researchers. You will also attend cardiovascular clinics in one of our partner hospital trusts.

How will I be taught?

Our course consists of taught modules and a Research Dissertation.

We deliver taught modules as three-day intensive courses to facilitate attendance from students in employment. Weekly support sessions and journal club supplement learning – all held in our modern facilities in Bache Hall on the Countess of Chester Hospital Campus.
