About

The Cardiovascular Disease programme offered by the University of Chester aims to inform and equip the practitioner or researcher with the necessary skills to function in a modern biomedical/clinical environment specialising in cardiology, and will be relevant to researchers, day-to-day NHS hospital practice and general practice.

Overview

Career Prospects

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence-based practice.

The Cardiovascular Disease programme offered by the University of Chester culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two articles in the style of published scientific work.

The content of the course is mapped to academic content of The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Cardiology.
