Course summary

This unique practical and applied course will develop specialised knowledge of clinical exercise science

Overview

This novel programme is designed for those wishing to gain and develop expert knowledge in the science of exercise assessment and prescription and learn applied techniques which will enable you to develop a career in clinical exercise science, academic research, teaching and other science-based professions.

The evidence demonstrating that physical activity reduces the risk of developing chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity and type 2 diabetes highlights the need for clinical exercise practitioners with high level knowledge of physical activity and health who can work within community and healthcare settings.

This programme offers a well-balanced blend between practice and theory. The course is multi-disciplinary in nature covering aspects of exercise physiology, exercise and health psychology, biomechanical principles as well as clinical skills.

Course details

During your studies you will develop an advanced understanding of the research evidence in the context of clinical exercise science.

You will learn to apply theoretical concepts and professional skills in practical situations likely to be encountered by a clinical exercise scientist.

You will employ advanced investigative, analytical and practical techniques to advance knowledge in clinical exercise science.

You will present evidence-based clinical exercise prescription appropriate for a range of pathologies and in seemingly healthy populations and be able to effectively communicate evidence and treatment goals with a variety of populations.

You will gain enhanced knowledge and learn skills in clinical exercise science to increase employability in an academic or applied setting.
