Masters in Preventive Cardiology

Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cardiovascular Health and Lifestyle Medicine

The scientific evidence for cardiovascular disease is compelling but translating this evidence into effective patient care is a challenge. This innovative programme in Preventive Cardiology is delivered in the NIPC headquarters, the Croí Heart and Stroke Centre in Galway, and provides students with the knowledge and practice skills required to bridge this implementation gap and achieve the recommended lifestyle and therapeutic targets. It is currently the only postgraduate programme in Preventive Cardiology in Europe.

Delivered within the wider context of chronic disease management, this course will enable students to provide effective self-management support to individuals living with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other long-term conditions. This MSc programme is aimed at healthcare professionals who play a role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, such as physicians, nurses, dietitians, physiotherapists, physical activity specialists, pharmacists, psychologists, occupational therapists, sports scientists, health promotion and public health specialists.
