Overview

This Perfusion Science course at the University of Bristol  is only available to students who have secured a clinical perfusion scientist trainee position with an accredited training centre in Great Britain or Ireland. Successful completion of the programme will lead to accreditation as a clinical perfusion scientist by the SCPS.

The MSc provides a high-quality, research-led education that will equip you with enhanced knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of the current approaches and emerging research relating to perfusion science.

It will cover:

  • Advanced physiology and disease states of organs that are affected by cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and thereby relevant to perfusion science.
  • Composition and function of blood and implications of transfusion and use of CPB on function.
  • Detailed knowledge regarding pathobiology, epidemiology and symptoms of cardiovascular diseases (coronary artery disease, valve and heart disease, paediatric heart disease) and their current treatments.
  • Current pre-clinical and clinical research to improve the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.
  • A theoretical background in quantitative statistics leading to more advanced knowledge on clinical trial design and management.
  • Principles and practical aspects of the currently used techniques in adult and paediatric perfusion science.
  • The key elements of a well-designed research project.
