Master of Sports Medicine

Overview

Widen your knowledge in the sports medicine field and incorporate sports medicine practices into your general practice.

This 16-unit coursework and research program has been created specifically for registered general practitioners who want to advance their knowledge and skills in sports medicine.

Through the program, you'll acquire the clinical knowledge, research and practical skills for evidence-based practice in sports medicine. The knowledge and skills gained will allow you to provide a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to prevention, treatment and management of sports injuries. You'll be well equipped to treat a range of active people, from amateur sports enthusiasts, elite athletes, children, and those with disabilities or advanced age.

The program offers flexible, work-based learning and is delivered entirely online using proven online learning pedagogies (such as hands-on video tutorials) and discussion forums to allow contact with expert staff and other general practitioners. Assessment projects are highly practical and industry relevant and they can also be customised to your own development needs.

You'll graduate with a respected qualification and enhanced knowledge to advance your professional skills or set yourself up for further academic study.
