Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology) - Swansea University

Cardiac Physiologists work with those suspected or known to have heart disease. This degree is ideal if you enjoy human biology and are interested in health and wellbeing. You should want to work with patients in specialised healthcare environments, be comfortable with technological equipment and be good at problem-solving. Students on this course spend half their time at university and half on placements, preparing for the world of work. This course starts before normal University term time and has different leave entitlements. **The degree will:** - Equip you with the skills to work in the NHS or private sector. - Provide transferable skills in team working, communication, problem-solving and analysis. Cardiac physiologists now perform some tasks that were previously the remit of doctors.
