Careers
Employer-valued skills this course develops

This programme is designed to provide you with a more in-depth level of understanding and a sound basis in research and analytical skills in relation to sport and exercise medicine. It also develops a sound understanding of the disciplines that constitute the sports and exercise science support services to sports and health organisations.

Employers will be able to recognise the advanced knowledge and in-depth understanding and skills within the specialised area of sport and exercise medicine, which has professional and technical demands, as well as academic. For example, the ability to analyse factors related to injury that have been developed by researchers, and to understand how these factors relate to the applied and clinical setting. Also, a flexible approach to work such that an understanding of how sports and exercise medicine can be applied via an inter-disciplinary approach, to advance clinical skills in sports medicine, is promoted.

Placement opportunities

The Sport and Exercise Medicine Placement module provides the opportunity for practical experience of working in a performance sport setting as part of the support team. You will work alongside sport science / sport medicine staff to deliver day-to-day support in an area of interest (e.g. sports science performance testing, physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation, clinical assessment, medical screening), dependent on your academic/professional background and professional interest.

The module will provide detailed insight into the challenges of working in the high pressure environment of professional sport, performing as part of a team of support staff. Examples of partners we currently work with include Exeter Chiefs Rugby Union Club, Exeter City F.C., Yeovil Town Women’s F.C. and Commando Training Centre Royal Marines.
