Key Course Facts
Heart failure is a growing epidemic and a rapidly evolving subspecialty within cardiology. Our new Heart Failure MSc is a structured international teaching programme and the first of its kind.
The population of patients with heart failure is growing, and heart failure is now the leading cause of hospitalisation among adults over 65. An impressive advancement in the development of drugs and devices that prolong life expectancy in patients with heart failure has resulted in a significant demand for physicians with expertise in this important area.
While current awareness of heart failure among physicians is good, there remains a pressing need for experts to safely and effectively manage patients with this condition. Heart Failure MSc will provide you with a unique set of skills and knowledge to manage the increasingly complex patients with heart failure, developing you into a heart failure specialist.
Heart Failure MSc is launching a part-time route from September 2021 and a full-time route from September 2022.
