Course content

The course is designed and suitable for qualified podiatrists with clinical experience and an interest in sports medicine. It is a very practical course with a multidisciplinary approach to patient management, so it should also appeal to those who want to enhance their clinical knowledge and expertise. It is taught in tandem with the other MSc routes (medics, physiotherapists and osteopaths) and allows integration across the differing clinical backgrounds.

This programme will:

  • Offer you mastery of foundation concepts and skills in Sports and Exercise Medicine.
  • Give you the knowledge and skills to assess sports injuries and to understand their treatment options, as well as understanding the physiological and psychological benefits of exercise and its use as a health tool.
  • Allow you regular clinical contact with athletes and sportspeople.
  • Introduce you to visiting lecturers, who are experts in the field of Sports Medicine.

Information for international students
