Healthcare science staff who work in the physiological sciences use specialist equipment, advanced technologies and a range of different procedures to evaluate the functioning of different body systems, to diagnose abnormalities, and to direct and in some case, provide therapeutic intervention and long-term management and care.
The work involves direct interaction with patients in a range of areas.
Most healthcare science staff in physiological sciences work in hospital clinics and departments, or as part of a surgical team. Some work in the community, visiting patients in their homes or in schools. Take a look at the roles available:
- cardiac sciences
- clinical exercise physiology
- clinical perfusion
- critical care science
- gastrointestinal physiology
- ophthalmic and vision science
- respiratory physiology and sleep sciences
- urodynamic science
- vascular science
