Clinical measurement science

Clinical measurement science is an allied health profession that supports the care of patients in hospitals.

Multidisciplinary teams of clinical measurement scientists focus their patient investigations around four primary disciplines:

  • cardiac sciences
  • neurophysiology
  • respiratory sciences
  • sleep sciences.

Clinical measurement involves performance of physiological tests (such as electrocardiography (ECG) and 24 hour halter monitoring) to diagnose and 'fine tune' therapeutic management of an already established disease.

Requirements to practise

Individuals seeking employment as a clinical measurement scientist require a science-based bachelor degree with a strong human physiology component.
