This programme targets medical doctors, healthcare professionals, and scientists working on cardiovascular diseases. It has been designed to meet the needs of mid-career professionals who seek formal qualifications but cannot participate in a traditional full-time MSc programme.
Some of the mandatory courses will focus on cardiovascular disease; therefore, experience in cardiovascular science either as a practising cardiologist or as a health economist is desirable. Outstanding candidates with different backgrounds in health care are strongly encouraged to apply.
Students with previous training in health economics or policy can benefit from our more advanced course options.
