The Exercise Physiology program at the University of Sydney will help you to gain a comprehensive understanding of exercise physiology including metabolism and physiology, human motor learning and control, the principles of exercise programming, nutrition and pharmacology, and musculoskeletal principles of exercise.
Integrated clinical practice instruction, practicums, and case studies will provide the advanced skills and experience essential for professional practice. As part of your degree you will complete over 500 hours of clinical training across both the public and private sectors, through which you will learn to apply your knowledge and work within a range of different clinical settings.
Upon successful accreditation, you will have the opportunity to work across a wide range of healthcare sectors, including cardiac rehabilitation, musculoskeletal rehabilitation, mental health, long-term rehabilitation following spinal cord injury, ageing, occupational rehabilitation and programs for people with an intellectual disability.
Once successfully accredited, exercise physiologists are eligible to receive a Medicare provider number to provide exercise services under Medicare. The Department of Veterans' Affairs, WorkCover and many health funds all cover the costs of treatment through an exercise physiologist. Most exercise physiologists work in private practice, but they are also found in hospitals, community health centres, rehabilitation and aged care centres, as well as other workplaces and health promotion agencies. Exercise physiologists work closely with other health professions such as psychologists, physiotherapists, nurses and doctors.
