The Cardiac Care Management program post-diploma certificate is intended for health care professionals who are interested in working in cardiac sciences or in caring for the cardiac population. The program provides students with the specialty knowledge and expertise required to work with patients with or at risk for cardiac disease. The entire patient journey is addressed, including health promotion, disease prevention, management of acute episodes and chronic conditions, rehabilitation, and palliation. The program prepares students to provide care to individuals, families, groups, communities and populations in a variety of settings in both urban and rural environments. 

Online delivery courses offer mature learners the flexibility to balance their studies with professional commitments and family responsibilities.

Career Potential

A broad spectrum of employment opportunities are available for health care professionals with cardiac specialization. Graduates work in emergency departments, coronary care units, medical units, diagnostic imaging centres, specialized clinics, rehabilitation settings, research areas and out-patient units. Because health care professionals have contact with cardiac patients in a myriad of settings, they are strategically positioned to confront cardiac disease and to educate patients and their families about the disease and its treatment.
