Pursue a broad approach to physiological sciences. Specialise in training that is suitable for NHS healthcare science practitioners. Choose your own path with this flexible course.


Cardiac Physiology: Healthcare Science Practitioners in this field are responsible for performing and interpreting a wide range of diagnostic tests including Electrocardiographs (ECG), ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate monitors, and exercise stress tests. Qualified staff also monitor patients during invasive tests such as coronary angiograms and percutaneous coronary intervention. They also ensure the optimal function of implantable devices such as pacemakers and implantable cardiovertor defibrillators (ICDs).

The course includes a series of integrated clinical placements each year in an approved clinical training laboratory. If you would like to follow this route, then you would apply for BSc (Hons) Physiological Sciences, then apply for this area when you start the course.


Course structure

Teaching methods include lectures, practical work, seminars and group work. Assessment is via coursework and exams, in a ratio of roughly 40:60.

Your first year will focus on the normal function of the body, and as you move into year 2, you will be introduced to the concept of disease and how disease can affect the normal healthy function of the body. Year 3 will broaden your knowledge of how you can apply skills in laboratory or physiological testing to measure physiological functions. There is also a broad range of optional modules that allow you to build up your knowledge and skills to suit your area of expertise.

If you choose to apply for Healthcare Sciences and are successful at interview, as well as the teaching methods above, you will follow a series of integrated clinical placements each year in an approved clinical training laboratory.

Sunderland’s exceptional facilities include excellent laboratories and cutting-edge equipment thanks to a multi-million pound investment.

This includes a human anatomy resource, a new state of the art clinical skills suite and bioscience laboratories and a patient simulation suite/theatre.

Entry requirements

In order to undertake the work-based training part of the Healthcare Science course, you will need a satisfactory disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and a medical check, and be subject to interview by the hospital work placement provider. This selection process will be undertaken during the first year of the course.

If English is not your first language, we require a minimum of IELTS 6.0 (or equivalent), however if you wish to take the Healthcare Science route you will need a score of 7.0.

Career ready

NHS salaries for staff working in healthcare science range from around £21,000 to around £80,000 per year. At entry level, the work involves obtaining diagnostic data from patients and working as part of a multidisciplinary team that also includes doctors, nurses and radiographers.

BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science – Cardiac Physiology

This degree will prepare you for a role as a healthcare science practitioner in the NHS, specialising in cardiac physiology.

Healthcare is changing and similarly the role of Healthcare Science Practitioners within cardiac physiology is changing to offer patients the best possible experience. Technology is constantly developing with equipment becoming increasingly portable, meaning many tests that at one time could only be performed in hospitals, can now be performed in GP surgeries or community clinics. The development of wireless technology now allows monitoring of patients with heart rate monitors and implantable cardiac devices without the patient having to visit hospital departments.

The main role of a Healthcare Science Practitioner is to help perform, analyse and interpret tests to provide a clinical report that assists with diagnosis of disease. Newly qualified staff will develop the core skills gained at university and learn to work independently without supervision and eventually look to specialise in one of two areas, Echocardiography or Cardiac Rhythm Management. Beyond this, staff are regularly encouraged to develop their skills to take on additional responsibilities such as patient education, training staff from other disciplines, mentorship, or service development.  

Qualities of an Audiologist/Cardiac Physiologist are:

  • Ability to communicate well with all types of people
  • Good problem solving skills
  • Ability to work as part of a team
  • A caring and understanding attitude
  • Good manual dexterity
  • Analytical skills


If English is not your first language you should have at least one of the following qualifications (or equivalent) as a minimum.

International English Language Testing System (IELTS)

You need an overall score of 6.0, with at least 5.5 or higher in each component: reading, writing, listening and speaking. An alternative approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) will also be accepted if the applicant’s element scores are equivalent to those required for IELTS. After 6 April 2015, you must take your IELTS exams at one of the test centres listed on the UKVI website.

Pearson Test of English Academic

You need an overall score of 59 with no less than 59 in each skill.

Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE)

You need grade C or above.

Cambridge Certification in Advanced English (CAE)

You need grade C or above.
