The Graduate Certificate in Sports Medicine will teach you core knowledge about diagnosing, treating and managing exercise-related injuries. This 8-unit program has been created specifically for registered general practitioners who want to advance their knowledge and skills in sports medicine. You'll learn the fundamental aspects of sports medicine, including how to identify and treat acute and overuse injuries, injury prevention, rehabilitation and biomechanics. Through the program, you'll acquire the skills to treat a range of active people, from amateur sports enthusiasts, elite athletes, children, and those with disabilities or advanced age. It will serve as an important backdrop within a general practice setting. The programs offer flexible, work-based learning and are delivered entirely online using proven online learning pedagogies (such as hands-on video tutorials) and discussion forums to allow contact with expert staff and other general practitioners. Assessment projects are highly practical and industry relevant and they can also be customised to your own development needs.
