PhD Opportunity

University of Leicester

An exciting opportunity has developed for a healthcare professional with experience in cardiovascular or geriatric medicine, who wishes to pursue a PhD. The University of Leicester is offering a PhD studentship in a BHF funded project around frailty in heart failure. The study aims to develop, pilot and evaluate a novel comprehensive geriatric assessment based intervention incorporating an individualised exercise programme, dietary support and regular medication review to improve the physical functioning and quality of life of heart failure patients with frailty.
