Our Biomedical and Biological Science courses have a burgeoning international reputation, due to our world class research in areas including biomarkers, public health and biomodelling. The university is home to the Centre for Investigative and Diagnostic Oncology, which has pioneered techniques for cancer diagnosis and treatment, including our breakthrough in the development of a vaccine for bladder cancer.

Our teaching and research facilities surpass those at some UK medical schools, and our course will provide you with both in depth practical experience and comprehensive, up to date theoretical knowledge. Our specialist clinical physiology laboratory houses a wide range of diagnostic equipment and is run by experienced practitioners. As well as attending practical classes in the lab, you'll be able to use it for independent study and research, and will have...

Was lernen Sie in diesem Kurs?

IT Management
rhythm management


You’ll gain a sound understanding of common cardiac problems, the equipment and techniques that can be used to diagnose them and possible treatments. You’ll study three core modules, common to all our postgraduate biomedical and biological science courses: biomedical ethics and law, laboratory leadership and management, and experimental design and statistics. Alongside these you’ll study five specialist cardiac physiology modules: advanced signal processing; cardiac ultrasound theory; cardiac ultrasound practice; clinical electrophysiology; and cardiac rhythm management.

The core modules will cover how to design and carry out experiments and statistical analyses; literature searching, referencing and citation; aspects of managing a laboratory, from people management to business plans and budgets; safety, regulations and quality management; and ethical and legal issues, such as those surrounding research on animals and humans, assisted reproduction and genetics.

The specialist modules will cover physiological signal sampling and analysis, including EMG and EEG; echocardiography and Doppler analysis; ECGs, ablation and electrophysiological studies; and treatment for arrhythmias, including drug therapy, cardiac pacing, cardio version and defibrillation.

You’ll then work on a dissertation, which will involve planning and carrying out your own independent, analytical research project and critically evaluating your results. You can choose to do either an experimental or observational study, and can base your project at your workplace if you’re in relevant employment. As part of your project, you’ll research relevant literature and carry out a literature review. You’ll present your findings through a written report and a verbal presentation.

If you don’t want to or aren’t able to complete the full MSc, you can also obtain a PG Cert or PG Dip, studying four modules for a PG Cert and eight for a PG Dip, omitting the dissertation.
