USC Student Placements

SCHS have supported University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) Biomedical Science students. As part of their degree we host students for a 10 week work placement to allow them to experience and learn skills in Cardiac Science. The students work alongside our experienced Cardiac Scientists in clinic to learn ECG technical and interpretive skills; Holter, Event and BP monitoring; Exercise stress testing; basic knowledge on pacemakers and Remote Home Monitoring , as well as the chance to observe and learn about Echocardiography and Angiography.
