This programme is suitable for medical or healthcare practitioners already working in any clinical area and who wish to deepen their knowledge of cardiology. These professionals should have an MBBS or an equivalent degree/experience, proof of a basic knowledge of the minimum standard in the English language is required if the basic medical degree was not conducted in the English medium.
A Postgraduate Diploma in Cardiology indicates to colleagues and patients that the holder has a special interest in cardiology, and affords greater confidence when delivering cardiology care. Students can also build their credentials through this programme, as it is accredited by many influential Cardiology organisations such as the Royal College of General Practitioners, the National Association for Primary Care, the British Cardiovascular Society and the European Society of Cardiology.
