Postgraduate Certificate Cardiac Rehabilitation
This fully online postgraduate qualification equips students with the knowledge and skills required to make meaningful contributions to cardiac rehabilitation practice. The scientific evidence for cardiovascular disease prevention and rehabilitation is compelling. As such, evidence-based practice features strongly together with multidisciplinary approaches to the comprehensive delivery of high-quality care. The effective implementation of intensive lifestyle and medical risk factor management together with enabling psychosocial health and wellbeing are cornerstone.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Cardiac Rehabilitation involves students participating in a 30 ECTS Level 9 module that runs from the first week of January to end of May each year. This module is delivered fully online with scheduled virtual tutorials and workshops taking place typically 1-2 Thursday/Friday evenings (3-7pm) and 1 Saturday per month.
There is an array of employment opportunities in public health, health promotion, healthcare management, academic and research settings and the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates of the course with a clinical background will also specifically benefit from career advancement in the specialty of cardiac rehabilitation as well as cardiovascular health more broadly.
