About this course

Cardiac physiology is a challenging but rewarding field of healthcare science that focuses on the detection and assessment of heart disease in a wide range of settings. This course is divided equally between academic and clinical placement learning, giving you the skills to change lives through your specialist care.

You’ll study cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep physiology in your first year, then specialise in cardiac physiology in your second and third years. You’ll learn how to use specialist diagnostic equipment and interpret clinical information to make key decisions.

Based at the University Hospital Southampton and Highfield campus, you'll put your learning into practice in our dedicated clinical learning environment. You’ll benefit from a high level of patient interaction and workplace training through placements in out-patient departments, wards and theatres.

On successful completion of this degree course you'll be able to apply for registration with the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHS) and the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP).

You may be able to study this course part-time if you're already working in a Cardiac Physiology Department (UCAS code 7D25). Please contact our admissions team for more information.
