This course allows you to apply high-level academic and practical management skills to the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries arising from sport and physical activity.
On completion, you will have been taught the necessary skills to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries in the physically active. You will also be eligible for membership of the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) and benefit from the professional industry insight they provide.
You will attend a minimum of four one-month clinical placements at a sports injury clinic, professional sports club and a private practice. You will also have a placement under the direct supervision of a specialist orthopaedic consultant surgeon. These placements are organised for you by the University, giving you experience of a wide range of workplace environments.
You will study musculoskeletal injuries, therapeutic techniques and exercise rehabilitation skills, supported by a foundation in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and psychology.
You will learn how to help injured people get back to full sporting activity by applying cutting-edge rehabilitation techniques in a lively and supportive environment. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills in real-life situations.
