Postgraduate coursework programs

In 2022 we launched two new programs for graduate physiotherapists who wish to become sports and exercise physiotherapists.

The Master of Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy provides physiotherapists with advanced theoretical, scientific and clinical knowledge of normal and pathological human movement as it relates to sports, exercise, performance, injuries, pathology and disease. The Master of Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy/Master of High Performance Sport double degree emphasises the application and integration of specialised knowledge and technical skills for enhancing the conditioning of high performance athletes, with the aim of optimising individual and team performance, in an ethical manner.
