This Clinical Exercise Science programme at the Edinburgh Napier University offers a well-balanced blend between practice and theory. The course is multi-disciplinary in nature covering aspects of exercise physiology, exercise and health psychology, biomechanical principles as well as clinical skills.
People often ask us, what does a Clinical Exercise Scientist do? A Clinical Exercise Scientist/Specialist/Physiologist supports people who:
- are recovering from injury, or perhaps have a prior injury they do not want to exacerbate but would like to become fitter and healthier.
- have a chronic health condition (such as cancer, diabetes, stroke low mood, depression and anxiety, hypertension, high cholesterol, asthma, obesity, osteoporosis, etc) for which exercise would be beneficial.
- have goals around losing or maintaining a healthy weight
- are looking for a tailored and prescribed exercise programme to meet health and wellness needs.
- Career opportunities include: Working for private health providers, GP exercise referral; programmes; Injury rehabilitation services; NHS and private hospitals; Exercise rehabilitation clinics; Fitness industry; Sports rehabilitation; Private practice; Research.
- Our graduates have gone on to pathways within the NHS, and a range of health and well-being careers in physiology, health & fitness (e.g. Edinburgh Leisure, Nuffield Health), and in behaviour change in public health and community roles, and PhD study.
