Descrizione

Designed primarily for existing healthcare practitioners, this degree covers non invasive methods in cardiopulmonary exercise testing to accurately assess the performance of the heart and lungs of patients at rest and during exercise.



A distinctive and integral feature of the MSc is the focus on both in depth practical experience and comprehensive, up to date knowledge. Students will study key concepts in leadership and management, as well as legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research and clinical practice. You will also gain a solid grounding in research methodologies required for biomedical research.



Our industry experienced tutors place an emphasis on work based experience and candidates are normally required to work in a cardiology non invasive department.

Course content

What will you study on the MSc/PGCert/PGDip Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing?

This course covers both theory and practice of cardiopulmonary exercise testing and cardiac rehabilitation. In addition, you will study key concepts in leadership and management as well as legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research and clinical practice.

What will you gain?

As part of the course, you will gain a solid grounding in experimental design and statistics and an opportunity to undertake an independent research project under guidance and supervision of an academic.

  • Modules
    • Advanced Signal Processing (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to provide students with a specialised body of current knowledge in the field of signal process methods used in clinical physiology, exploring concepts of signal processing for diagnosis and monitoring. Gaining confidence in the interpretation of diagnostic information, students will become familiar with specialised and advanced techniques and technologies. The module leads students towards a greater understanding of new methods for analysis of physiological signals.

    • Biomedical Ethics and Law (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The purpose of this module is to provide insight into a range of ethical and legal issues that relate to professional practice, research with human and animal subjects and to human reproduction — particularly various forms of reproductive technology. It will equip students with a broad overview of the relevant current UK ethical and legal regulations for research using human tissues. The ethical issues present in the rapidly developing area of genetic technology, including genetic testing and selection, genetic engineering, and the concept of genetic disease, will also be explored.By applying theoretical considerations to practice, the module will then explore ways in which, ethical and legal issues can be critically analysed and addressed.

    • Cardiac Rehabilitation (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to provide students with the knowledge and understanding required to safely contribute to the treatment, exercise prescription and rehabilitation of patients with peripheral muscle dysfunction, chronic heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or cardiac thoracic surgery.

    • Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module is concerned with the knowledge and understanding required to safely contribute to the exercise testing and interpretation of patients with heart diseases, pulmonary vascular diseases, peripheral arterial diseases, ventilatory disorders, muscle disorders.

    • Cardiopulmonary Pathophysiology (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module equips students with the knowledge and understanding required to safely contribute to the exercise testing and interpretation of patients with heart diseases, pulmonary vascular diseases, peripheral arterial diseases, ventilatory disorders and muscle disorders.

    • Cardiopulmonary Pharmacology (15 credits) - Compulsory

      Students are provided with the knowledge and understanding required to safely contribute to the role pharmacology plays in cardiopulmonary exercise testing of patients with heart diseases, pulmonary vascular diseases, peripheral arterial diseases, ventilatory disorders, or muscle disorders.

    • Experimental Design and Statistics (15 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to provide students with the tools required to design effective and efficient experiments and to test scientific hypotheses. The module will also equip students with the tools necessary for statistical analysis in a hypothesis testing context.

    • Laboratory Leadership and Management (15 credits) - Compulsory

      The purpose of this module is to provide students with an understanding of, and the tools to apply current theories and approaches to leadership and management in order to enable them to effect positive change in a team or organisation that they lead or manage.

    • Research Project (60 credits) - Compulsory

      This module aims to develop skills in the planning and execution of an analytical study and in the critical evaluation of real research results, drawing on knowledge acquired from other modules. In addition, the module will develop student’s communication skills to enable them to communicate their findings both in written and oral form.
