Course summary

The MSc Clinical Biomechanics has been developed for health professionals who wish to extend their understanding of the clinical application of mechanical principles. Considerable flexibility in the way the award is structured will allow you to tailor learning to your specific area of practice.

Designed by research-active clinical professionals, the course bridges the gap between clinical practice and biomechanical principles, for a rigorous and focused understanding of the subject.

Applying mechanical principles to the management of pathology, human movement and gait dysfunction, the course is primarily focused on musculoskeletal practitioners such as physiotherapists, orthotists, chiropractors and podiatrists - who provide biomechanical-based interventions in their clinical practice.

In addition to being able to study to Certificate, Diploma or MSc level, you can choose to complete individual modules. This route not only provides an ideal taster to the MSc course, but can also be an effective way of completing CPD.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Clinical Biomechanics.

Teaching

Our teaching is supported through our Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard. This means you can access a range of materials to support your studies wherever you are via your PC, tablet or phone. This includes accessing video, audio and discussion forums where you can debate subjects with your tutors and fellow students.

Assessment

All modules are assessed by portfolio and often take the form of task-based reflections of clinical practice. The range of tasks you can choose to include is purposefully non-specific to allow for a broad range of interests, and to enable you to develop work that is relevant to your clinical practice.

Your dissertation will be self-directed and must take the form of a research project that is relevant to your needs. We understand that students typically wish to complete their dissertation in a particular healthcare setting. We therefore always aim to facilitate projects around the country.

Careers

Successfully completing the course will help equip you for specialist practice, as well as advanced practitioner roles, team leader and subject leader positions.

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you will be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.
