Course Summary

Course overview

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.


Assessment will involve examinations, case-study reports, practical skills, critical reviews, and written reports.

Careers and Employability

Student Futures aims to deliver a service which is inclusive, impartial, welcoming, informed and tailored to your personal goals and aspirations, to enable you to develop as an individual and contribute to the business and community in which you will live and work.

On completion of the taught modules, students will have developed their knowledge base and attained a high level of competence in the application, analysis and evaluation of theory and practice. This knowledge and critical skills will have been assessed in all previous assignments, thereby providing students with the opportunity to undertake a research project relevant to their taught programme of study. The project subject will be agreed with an appropriate supervisor and the Module Leader (Research Co-ordinator). The subject matter may be related to any area of Biomedical, Clinical or Psycho-social Science element with specific relevance to physical activity, exercise or sport.
