Why Study Cardiovascular Health and Rehabilitation with us?
The prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a cost-effective means of managing the leading cause of death in the UK and in many parts of the developed world. CVD prevalence is also accelerating in the developing world, making our course highly relevant to overseas students.
Our programme of study is highly flexible by offering:
- either full-time or part-time routes to suit personal and work commitments
- modules delivered over three- to four-day blocks, with eight weeks of home-based learning.
Our course covers the physiological, psychological and social factors relating to medical and lifestyle care required by modern health professionals. The aims of our course are for you to develop:
- a critical understanding of cardiovascular health and rehabilitation concepts
- a scientific and enquiring approach to the study of physiological, psychological, social and healthcare management components for managing people with and/or those at higher risk of cardiovascular disease
- research skills for the critical investigation of the disease management components listed above
- opportunities for clinical learning experiences. Placements are available at Countess of Chester Hospital, and Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.
The course is delivered by a team of experienced academics and leading specialist front-line lead practitioners.
