Course content

Interest in sport and exercise in the UK has increased significantly, and those working in the industry require a diverse set of skills. This course will enable you to apply science and medicine to help athletes recover from injury and reach their physical peak, and aid the general population in maintaining healthy lifestyles.

You'll gain practical expertise that will allow you to assess, treat and support individuals from a variety of sporting disciplines. By understanding the process of an injury audit to identify risk factors, you will learn how to implement an evidence-based treatment plan that minimises the chance of re-injury.

You will develop a comprehensive knowledge of pathophysiology, biomechanics and sports-specific clinical reasoning, allowing you to accurately evaluate and attend to injuries that have occurred. You will study rehabilitation strategies, return to play assessments and explore the emergent field of prehabilitation, meaning you can prevent as well as treat injuries.

With access to both our Health and Carnegie faculties - including modern science and rehab labs, and sport facilities - you'll be empowered to take a holistic view of an individual's sporting health, regardless of age or competitive level.
