This flexible Sport and Exercise Medicine course from University of Leeds is designed to offer medical doctors, physiotherapists, sport therapists, podiatry or osteopathy healthcare professionals a unique and practitioner-led education in the field of sport and exercise medicine (SEM). 


With this Masters, you will be able to apply what you learn to any physical activity, exercise or sporting event that requires qualified SEM cover, with immediate effect. Indeed, there is currently a rapidly growing expectation amongst professional sports clubs that team doctors will have undergone structured training programmes to a Masters level.

Your course will feature four of the UK’s consultants in SEM and a number of the UK’s leading physiotherapists in musculoskeletal (MSK) medicine and elite sport. As the course is based in the Faculty of Biological Sciences, you will also have the opportunity to learn from country-leading sports & exercise scientists. As an added bonus, being based in Yorkshire means you will have access to a range of fantastic professional sports teams and MSK services.

Suitable for full-time or part-time study, this course comprises a mixture of face-to-face learning, placements in clinics and leading sports clubs, alongside online learning, providing a course that’s suitable for applicants in full-time employment as well as those looking to study full time. You will join a small, student-focused cohort of 15-20 healthcare practitioners, offering you the opportunity to network and learn from peers alongside strong tutor support. This course provides you with the unique ability to learn and work alongside a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, physiotherapists and sports therapists, just as you would in an elite sports setting.

Career Opportunities

Upon completion of this Sport and Exercise Medicine course from University of Leeds, students are well-placed for further study, e.g. recent graduates undertaking PhD research in this field. Through support with your clinical mentor on the course, a range of opportunities for career development are available.
