Teesside University: Sports Rehabilitation
|Department||Sport and Exercise|
Our MSc Sports Rehabilitation is endorsed by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers and the Sports Therapy Organisation. The course gives you a clear pathway towards a career in sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, health and exercise and related fields with eligibility to become a practicing member of both organisations.
This is a two year full-time course. In year 1 you have contact time at the University main campus, one day a week. Year 2 is distance on-line learning. You are required to carry out 400 hours of supervised clinical experience, in a range of settings. This can be a mixture of internal and externally arranged negotiated hours within University led clinics and through external providers.
You will explore evidence-based practice, therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation combined with physiological, biomechanical and psychosocial factors, evaluating how they impact upon or are affected by health and exercise, sports injury, treatment and rehabilitation and you will apply your learning from these modules to conduct a self-initiated research project.
Using a problem-based learning and practical skills development approach, you will gain an advanced understanding of: assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of a range of health and sports related conditions and develop these skills through supervised clinical experience. You will benefit from hands-on experience with local sports teams. Examples of prior experiences are with Darlington Rugby Club, Middlesbrough FC and Hartlepool FC, Aquatic Rehabilitation as well as University teams, the nearby MOD Infantry Training Centre and within gyms and University Massage and Sports Injury Clinics.
Typically graduates are employed as sports therapists and sports rehabilitators. However, you are also well prepared for employment in related areas including the health and fitness industry, sport development, research and sport science support.
