This module introduces students to the science that underpins the investigation and management of patients with coronary heart disease, both in acute coronary syndromes and chronic coronary heart disease.
Through practical workshops and tutorials, students will learn a range of techniques utilised to achieve successful interventional coronary revascularisation.
Teaching will cover the various methods and technologies used to measure blood flow in humans, and gain in-depth knowledge of how imaging techniques can be applied to study coronary blood flow in humans. Students will attend multidisciplinary team meetings to learn the skills of decision making in complex cases.
Students will also have the opportunity to visit Imperial’s Department of Bioengineering where there are close collaborations on computational flow modelling.
This short course is one of the core modules of the MSc Innovations in Clinical Cardiology.
At the end of this module the students will be able to:
- Explain the contemporary approaches to diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with acute and stable coronary syndromes;
- Summarise contemporary approaches to the pharmacologic management of patients with acute and stable coronary syndromes;
- Evaluate the basic principles of interventional cardiology and invasive coronary imaging;
- Define the indications for percutaneous intervention, evaluate its risks and benefits, and identify those circumstances when surgical revascularisation would be indicated;
- Accurately interpret coronary angiographic cine-radiographic images.
Students have the option of completing an assessment component and on successful completion will be provided with an official Imperial College London transcript of results. Under the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) each module is worth 7.5 credits. Details of the assessment and deadline for submission will be given during the course.
This course is suitable for those who already hold a medicine degree and wish to a develop more comprehensive understanding of coronary artery disease.
We normally require a UK bachelor’s degree in medicine or equivalent, with at least two years post-graduate work experience in a clinical setting.
All candidates must demonstrate a minimum level of English language proficiency for admission to the College.
For admission to this course, you must achieve the standard College requirement in the appropriate English language qualification. For details of the minimum grades required to achieve this requirement, please see the English language requirements for postgraduate applicants.
