Course Summary

Overview

The School of Cardiovascular Medicine & Sciences pursues internationally leading research programmes that address the fundamental mechanisms underlying normal and abnormal cardiovascular function, and drives translation of strong basic science into advances in clinical practice.

Course study environment

Students work alongside staff researchers and are supervised by two members of academic staff. Each student has a dedicated Thesis Progression Committee that monitors students' progress and gives advice and support.

Postgraduate training

KCL offers a large number of training and skills development opportunities. Participation in the annual Postgraduate Research Symposium is compulsory for all students and provides an opportunity to improve science communication and presentation skills. Opportunities are available for postgraduate students to present their work at national and international scientific meetings. Our postgraduate students also have the opportunity to assist with teaching of undergraduates as demonstrators in practical classes or by leading tutorials.

In addition, the School also runs a series of workshops to teach specific practical cardiovascular research skills to students. This course also provides a four-year BHF MRes / PhD programme for a limited number of outstanding students.
