About this course
The Clinical Exercise Physiology MSc focuses on the practical application of research, including an introduction to phlebotomy and immediate life support.
Access cutting-edge equipment, including 12-lead ECG and cardiopulmonary stress exercise testing equipment. We also house several ultrasound machines – echocardiography and vascular physiology – and we are world leaders in utilising this equipment in a practical-based setting
Look forward to enhanced job opportunities in NHS and private clinical physiology
There has never been a more exciting time to undertake an MSc in Clinical Exercise Physiology. Exercise now represents one of the world’s major businesses and scientists have an increasingly prominent role in working with healthy and clinical populations to maintain healthy lifestyles and reduce disease.
This Masters programme is ideal if you want to go on to specialise in exercise physiology in a clinical setting. The course provides a detailed knowledge of physiology applied to clinical contexts, but is also designed to extend your knowledge beyond ‘classical’ exercise physiology studies and into novel techniques and theories underpinning exercise physiology and health.
You will gain extensive practical experience in key physiology laboratory tests such as ECG and cardiopulmonary testing. You will also develop a good understanding of modern and novel ultrasound assessments of cardiovascular function. Academic development is provided in fundamental scientific techniques including research methods, statistical analysis and scientific communication.
How learning is monitored on your programme
To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.
On this course you will be assessed in a variety of ways, including: interactive problem solving exercises; oral presentations in front of a peer group; coursework and essays, in some cases combined with oral defence.
The case report and literature review is a substantial piece of work based on your 140 hour clinical placement.
