This programme aims to develop your interest in translational cardiovascular research and medicine, and equip you with an enhanced knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of the current approaches and emerging research in this area. The programme, which is delivered by clinicians and scientists, provides a firm theoretical grounding in the basic scientific principles and clinical applications of translational cardiovascular medicine, and will help you develop essential skills and prepare for employment or a further higher degree in this field. In addition, you will be introduced to key practical techniques employed in this area.
The programme is designed to appeal to a wide range of students, including biomedical scientists, allied health professionals and clinicians. You have the option to study by distance learning (full-time or part-time) or on campus (full-time). Each unit will comprise tutorials and lectures plus coursework and examination assessments.
Campus-based students will attend lectures, tutorials, journal clubs, visits to clinical sessions and practicals.
For distance-learning students, lecture material will be available online, and optional workshops (up to 5 days per year for part-time students or up to 10 days per year for full-time students) will be held in Bristol, comprising tutorials, journal clubs, practical sessions, and visits to clinical sessions.

There are seven core taught units that make up this MSc, followed by a research project. The research project can either be laboratory-based (in Bristol) or a 'dry' project (literature review or grant proposal) on an appropriate area of study. It will be presented both in written form and orally with a mini presentation.
