Those who study cardiac physiology will encounter excellent prospects to work in NHS hospital practice as well as opportunities in research, education, management, Her Majesty’s Forces, governmental departments and the private sector.
This is an exciting and rapidly developing field that requires a high level of responsibility with many opportunities for specialist role extension following graduation.
Cardiac physiologists now perform some tasks that were previously the remit of doctors.
99% of healthcare science students from Swansea University are employed in graduate level jobs within six months of graduating.
Almost all of the previous graduates of the healthcare sciences have gone on to work in their chosen profession in the NHS, mainly in Wales but also in England. These students typically commence work in Band 5 Practitioner roles. Significant proportions of our graduates now work in Band 6 and Band 7 (specialist) roles.
