While current awareness of heart failure among physicians is good, there remains a pressing need for experts to safely and effectively manage patients with this condition. Heart Failure MSc will provide you with a unique set of skills and knowledge to manage the increasingly complex patients with heart failure, developing you into a heart failure specialist. 


This MSc is the UK’s first Master’s-level qualification in heart failure. A Master’s degree in Heart Failure from an established and highly ranked university will show potential employers that you have a high level of expertise.

As healthcare budgets tighten, staff with expert qualifications will be ever-more important to hospitals and healthcare providers, to make sure that investigation and treatments are carried out in the most efficient and effective way possible. This degree will set you apart from the competition, and provide you with unique employment opportunities within national health systems.

As a physician, this MSc will give you employment opportunities above your current cardiology experience, making you ideally suited for positions that require a heart failure specialist.
