Academic and practical training work in tandem on this course, preparing students at the University of Wolverhampton for Healthcare Science Practitioner roles with physiological treatment skills underpinned by theoretical proficiency. Structured in accordance with the NHS Modernising Scientific Careers initiative, the curriculum will build on generic healthcare science knowledge with education on more specialised aspects of physiological sciences, teaching provided on abnormalities from normal human body function and the importance of test results compounding competency training in techniques for Cardiac Physiology. Scheduled workplace training and placements in local hospitals are integrated throughout the course, honing your professional practice with mindfulness of the patient experience. Graduates will be equipped with a broad awareness of areas contributing to high-quality care, with scope for progression to careers within defined areas of practice.
Students do not start directly onto this course. They join BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Physiological Sciences) and transfer onto this route for Year 2.
