This course aims to provide the skills and knowledge to design and implement exercise programs for people with known disease. Exercise physiologists specialize in designing and delivering exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for people throughout the community, including those with chronic illnesses and health conditions. Theory and practice are incorporated through supervised clinical experience and clinically related studies. Students will develop strong clinical and professional skills to prescribe and monitor exercise to assess and enhance health and function after injury or chronic disease. The Master of Exercise Physiology is accredited at the level of exercise physiology by Exercise and Sports Science, Australia (ESSA), under the National University Course Accreditation Program. Graduates of the Master of Exercise Physiology may apply for membership with ESSA. Membership may be subject to additional or ongoing requirements beyond completion of the degree.
