Our MSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology will equip you with the knowledge and skills to promote the prescription of exercise, both as a preventative measure and as a treatment/therapy.
As the crucial role of exercise and physical activity in the treatment of diseases and medical conditions is increasingly understood, health practitioners are encouraged to consider exercise prescriptions when designing treatment plans and health interventions. Just as the exercise medicine global health initiative continues to grow, so do the opportunities for well-qualified individuals with an understanding of research in this area.
Formerly known as the MSc in Exercise as Medicine, the MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology has been developed in response to this trend, drawing on the University's internationally recognised research on physical activity and health. The programme is aimed at individuals with a background in exercise science and/or physical activity who wish to enhance their scientific knowledge and skills to be able to effectively promote the uptake of exercise, particularly for patients with hypertension, diabetes, pulmonary, renal and cardiac conditions, or those at risk of metabolic syndrome.
This MSc will therefore educate a new, highly skilled group of allied health professionals with the ability to work alongside clinicians and practitioners to manage the epidemic of lifestyle-related diseases and conditions.
Based in the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine – East Midlands, you will be taught in high quality teaching environments and have access to state-of-the-art laboratories, designed to facilitate the transfer of cutting-edge research to front-line support and care. You will be exposed to a range of specialist equipment and technology to facilitate your development.
The NCSEM is an Olympic legacy project delivering education, research and clinical services in sport, exercise and physical activity. It aims to apply world-class expertise to policies and practice that will benefit the health and wellbeing of the nation – from everyday people at risk of ill health through to elite athletes.
A wide range of high quality research takes place within the NCSEM-EM, which is then translated into teaching and training through its educational programmes. There is also a range of clinical services offered including sport and exercise medicine, orthopaedics, and cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, as well as diagnostic facilities including a 3T MRI scanner.
NCSEM activity covers the following themes: Physical activity in disease prevention; Exercise in chronic disease; Sports injuries and musculoskeletal health; Mental health and wellbeing; and Performance health.
