Course summary

This course provides medical and healthcare professionals the opportunity to choose studies across a spectrum of sports and exercise medicine disciplines, including physical activity in public and occupational health, disease prevention and rehabilitation, and sports injury management. Why study this course with us? This course is founded on two core elements:

  • The national aims set by the Joint Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons
  • The historical aims of Dr William Penny Brookes of Much Wenlock, Shropshire, the true founding father of the modern Olympic movement: activity and sport for social-cultural, mental and physical well-being
There is an increasing demand for postgraduate studies and professional development in exercise medicine in the UK and internationally. With the specialist and internationally respected reputations of the academic staff at University Centre Shrewsbury, this course aims to provide for the broader need around exercise in health, disease management and prevention.
