About

Performing Arts Medicine at University College London (UCL) provides specialised training to those interested or already involved in health services or health education to this very special sector of instrumental musicians, singers, dancers, actors, circus artists and other performing artists.

Overview

Assessing a performing artist requires specialised skills and the ability to associate health issues with the particular artistic activity. The programme provides its students with broad knowledge of the art forms and their demands on the performer and how these impact on their wellbeing.

MSc or PGDip students at University College London (UCL) build the confidence to assess and diagnose or refer appropriately as well as to monitor rehabilitation and return to performance, depending on their professional background. The privileged position of the health professional in helping performers overcome often career threatening adversity is a most rewarding experience that enriches this type of work.

  • Graduates' knowledge and experience is valued and they may be invited as educators and trainers in Performing Arts Medicine and will become members of an ever-growing medical community with common interest in the wellbeing of the performer.
