About this course
Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology) is a challenging but rewarding field that focuses on the detection and assessment of heart disease in a wide range of settings. Our cardiac courses are 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 Southampton General Hospital 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.
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.
This qualification is awarded by the University of Southampton.
