What will I learn?

Course description

The WHO estimated by 2030 more than 23 million people will die annually from cardiovascular disease. The discovery of effective and novel treatments for disease starts with understanding the molecular and cellular processes involved.

The course is delivered by experts within the cardiovascular field, both clinicians and academics. This course provides a unique research environment within which students can learn valuable transferable skills encompassing the full range of activity from discovery science at the laboratory bench to the hospital clinic/bedside. The research project forms the major part of your studies, during which time you will be integrated into the department as a member of an established research team.

Teaching

Teaching is delivered by research scientists, clinicians and clinical research managers. It consists of lectures supported by interactive tutorials and seminars. Demonstrations, simulations and practical classes are also used. Students will also attend departmental seminars and Research in Progress meetings as well as research group meetings once the project has started.

Assessment

Assessment is by oral and poster presentations, short reports and a translational perspectives leaflet. The research project is assessed by an oral presentation and written dissertation.
