Course content

Learn in the workplace and get qualified with an MSc APP in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Health. Our part-time course gives you the chance to use what you’re learning every day and work towards a masters degree in paediatric chiropractic. Study risk factors and public health issues such as nutrition, supine sleep in infancy and physical activity in children, and the musculoskeletal health of children from birth.

You’ll learn through tutorials, workshops, practical skills classes, seminars, small work groups, and lectures, and be assessed through critical reviews, reflective accounts, case reports, audits, and a research dissertation. We know how busy your lives can be, so we’ve to keep necessary attendance at the AECC University College campus as low as we can. When you do need to join us on campus, we’ve scheduled these lectures, tutorials, and so on to happen mostly at the weekends.

Though this course is part-time and you won’t need to come to campus regularly, you won’t be alone. You’ll be able to speak with your unit tutors who’ll give you the support that you need to complete your course. Talk to them through email, phone calls, or even scheduled one-to-one sessions on campus.
