Master of Sports Rehabilitation

What will I study?


What you will learn

Principles of biomechanics and sports injury prevention

Analyse biomechanics and pathomechanics in a range of sports and exercise contexts, with emphasis on assessing load patterns and mechanics in athletic movements and interpreting and predicting potential implications on injury and performance.

Contemporary approaches to health behaviour

You will learn the key theories underlying contemporary approaches to health promotion and health behaviour change in individuals across the health-illness spectrum and at the population level.

Research and evidence

You will build your skills in the use of research and evidence in habilitation and rehabilitation practices, with a primary focus on critical analysis of research.

As part of your studies, you will have the opportunity to appraise authentic expert consultations of real clinical cases and learn how to integrate multidisciplinary approaches to your own practice. Through this, you will further hone your skills in the provision of advice and promotion of safe physical activity participation and exercise in different sporting contexts. By learning to recognise the influence of social and cultural determinants of health behaviours, you will become well-informed to help patients achieve their rehabilitation goals. Course structure
