What is a Clinical Physiologist?
A Clinical Physiologist works in health care. They may work in a hospital, a clinic or at a university. Their job includes looking at some of the ways the human body functions and working out if there are any problems.
A Clinical Physiologist may see you if your doctor wants to learn more about their patient’s heart, breathing, sleep, brain or nerve activity. Clinical Physiologists may also teach patients about their health problems, help patients with their treatment, or do research to find out more health problems and treatments. Clinical Physiologists usually work closely with doctors, nurses and other health care workers.
