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 or on campus. For distance learning students, two-week residential workshops will be held in Bristol, comprising lectures, tutorials and seminars as well as journal clubs, practical sessions, visits to clinical sessions and assessments.
