Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 



The aim of this course is to provide an intellectually challenging
programme of advanced study in the application of exercise physiology
in clinical settings. The course involves the detailed study of the
physiological consequences of a range of chronic debilitating
diseases, and highlights the predictable changes that these different
diseases cause during exercise testing. You will be given a solid
grounding in the theory and application of a variety of physiological
tests and their application in clinical populations.

The theoretical parts of the course are underpinned by significant
time spent in the laboratory learning the practical skills required.
This includes graded cardiopulmonary exercise testing, cardiac
ultrasound measurements, vascular ultrasound measures and muscle
function analyses. A further strength is having the practical and
theoretical elements of Phase IV cardiac rehabilitation embedded
within the course delivery. The integration of theory and practice
within the course ensures that you will be able to meet developing
statutory professional requirements of practice-specific knowledge,
understanding and skills.
