This module will allow you to demonstrate that the knowledge and skills you have gained are consistent with those required for professional registration. Accordingly, you will develop a clinical portfolio detailing you clinical/professional experience gained whilst on placement across a range of cardiac investigations, patients and pathologies.
Aims and Objectives
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Lead and co-ordinate patient episodes to produce diagnostic data and analyse test data from a range of non-invasive and invasive cardiac investigations.
- Produce a Clinical Portfolio which cumulatively provides evidence of the skills, knowledge and attitudes gained.
- Apply principles of non-invasive and invasive cardiac investigations, integrating in-depth knowledge of physiology and pathophysiology for appropriate patient management.
- Practice independently demonstrating competence in a range of non-invasive and invasive cardiac investigations including: Cardiac catheter based procedures including intervention Cardiac rhythm management including implantation and post implant checks • Electrocardiography and interpretation • Blood pressure measurement and interpretation • Ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring application and analysis • Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring application and analysis • Cardiac stress testing investigations
- Critically appraise test data and patient history across a range of cardiac and non-cardiac pathologies and produce a report to inform patient care and treatment pathway.
- Working alongside healthcare professionals in a multitude of clinical scenarios
- Performing a range of investigations on patients with a diverse range of pathologies
- Collecting and interpreting clinical evidence demonstrating your competence in cardiac physiology

- Supervised patient contact using mentorship
- Staff and student led presentations
- Case presentations
- Ward rounds
- Attendance at clinics and opportunities to observe specialist treatments such as surgical interventions
- Departmental in-service programmes
- Peer support in the university and practice-based setting

This module is based within a clinical environment and can only be attempted in-person. Only two total attempts are allowed, irrespective of the regulatory conditions under which it is attempted. Any student who must re-attempt this module in a subsequent academic year must do so in attendance, as there is no external option.
If this is the only module taken in a specific academic year then the student will be suspended when not directly on placement. The attempt will be subject to pro-rata fees liability, which will be calculated based upon the credit total of the module. Any student choosing to re-attempt the module accepts the conditions described above and the fees liabilities defined, this includes any student who attempts this module as part of the conditional progression policy.
