As the crucial role of exercise and physical activity in the treatment of diseases and medical conditions is increasingly understood, health practitioners are encouraged to consider exercise prescriptions when designing treatment plans and health interventions. Just as the exercise medicine global health initiative continues to grow, so do the opportunities for well-qualified individuals with an understanding of research in this area.
Formerly known as Exercise as Medicine MSc, the Clinical Exercise Physiology MSc at Loughborough University has been developed in response to this trend, drawing on the University's internationally recognised research on physical activity and health. The programme is aimed at individuals with a background in exercise science and/or physical activity who wish to enhance their scientific knowledge and skills to be able to effectively promote the uptake of exercise, particularly for patients with hypertension, diabetes, pulmonary, renal and cardiac conditions, or those at risk of metabolic syndrome.
The School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences is committed to helping you develop the skills and attributes you need to progress successfully in your chosen career.
Graduates of this programme will be able to pursue careers in the allied healthcare professions, such as health promotion; public health; exercise testing and prescription; rehabilitation; higher education and research; clinical exercise physiology; psychology; lifestyle medicine; digital health; concierge medicine and exercise therapy.
This programme is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to work alongside clinicians, practitioners and policymakers in the management of lifestyle-related diseases and conditions.
