|Description:||Cardiac Physiologists work with those suspected or known to have heart disease. This degree is ideal for students who enjoy human biology and are interested in health and wellbeing. Students should want to work with patients in specialised healthcare environments, be comfortable with technological equipment and be good at problem-solving. The University is the Welsh Government’s preferred provider for Healthcare Science (cardiac physiology) professional pre-registration education in south west Wales. The degree will:
• Equip students with the skills to work in the NHS or private sector
• Provide transferable skills in team working, communication, presentation, problem-solving and analysis.
Cardiac physiologists now perform some tasks that were previously the remit of doctors. Students on this course spend half their time at university and half on placements, preparing for the world of work. Students will also have multiple opportunities to use the College of Human and Health Sciences’ state-of-the-art facilities which offer realistic workplace experiences and learning resources including a clinical and technical skills centre and simulated clinical practice facilities.
