Neurophysiology skills are in short supply, and our specialist neurophysiology course equips you with the most demanded expertise, experience and skillset to make an impact as a healthcare scientist. Through a mix of analysis, lab work and a 50 week industry placement, you’ll develop the knowledge, skills and experience to confidently investigate, diagnose, treat and monitor a range of neurological disorders, including epilepsy, strokes, dementia, nerve and muscle dysfunction and multiple sclerosis. Our excellent relationships with local trusts give you access to work placements at some of CA most prestigious healthcare institutions. You’ll get to grips with the latest equipment as you put your skills into practice in our state-of-the-art laboratories. You’ll use EEG, EMG, and NCS, learning how to execute specialist procedures. This means you’ll develop the specific skills that are in short supply – and high demand – within the field. You’ll be qualified to work at the heart of the NHS as a healthcare scientist in neurophysiology. We’ll give you the support you need to succeed – from your Personal Tutor to your Graduate Academic Assistant, each one has studied your subject and will provide the support you need based on their own experience. If you need a little help with writing, numeracy or library skills, we can help with that too. Our specialist healthcare science courses are designed to equip you with a skillset that meets the growing demands of the healthcare sector.
Healthcare Science (Neurophysiology) BSc Honours
With a skillset that’s in high demand, there’s never been a better time to study neurophysiology.
Learning to apply scientific principles of healthcare science to patient care will be at the heart of all you study. You will develop the understanding and confidence to execute specialist procedures in neurophysiology, including: EEG (electroencephalography) – recording the electrical activity of the brain; evoked potentials – measuring brain responses to specific stimuli; and EMG (Electromyography) and NCS (Nerve Conduction Studies) – assessing nerve and muscle function. You will learn to perform a wide range of clinical procedures competently, in accordance with health and safety guidelines, and within the scope of practice and professional codes of conduct. You will graduate with the ability to critically evaluate research evidence in the context of current theory and practice and will have the confidence to solve clinical problems under pressure. You will also have gained the communication skills to provide an excellent standard of patient care.
