What you will learn

The Cardiovascular and Respiratory Healthcare programme from Imperial College London is designed for people from a wide range of healthcare backgrounds, including:

  • Healthcare Scientists
  • Nurses
  • Physiotherapists
  • Advanced Practitioners

You will have the opportunity to discuss new technologies for the prevention, diagnosis and management of ill-health and their impact on the delivery of person-centred healthcare.

Lecturers from a multidisciplinary background will draw on their clinical and research experience at a national and international level to facilitate your learning.

The programme runs successfully through a combination of educational materials and opportunities to interact online alongside more traditional teaching methods. This blended format of delivery consists of teaching sessions (face-to-face or made available online), live webinars, discussion fora, formative and summative assessments administered through our virtual learning environment, and a range of resources to facilitate self-study and progression.

The programme is flexible and available as a full- or part-time MSc, delivered over one or two years.

Graduates go on to pursue a career, in a clinical setting, such as setting up clinical services, or in academia by enrolling on PhD programmes.
