This is an accredited NHS Clinical Physiology Practitioner Training Programme, developed under the Department of Health “Modernising Scientific Careers” initiative to train scientists for a patientcentred role within the NHS.
Graduates are eligible for professional registration, and to apply for NHS Band 5 Clinical Physiology positions. Clinical Physiologists play a vital part in the diagnosis, management and treatment of patients within their specialist field.
Ours is the largest course of this type and St George's is the only university in London accredited to train students in both Cardiac Physiology and Respiratory/Sleep Physiology. Students have the chance to gain academic and workplace experience in both before making an informed decision about their preferred field at the end of the first year.
