What you'll study
This programme is the longest-established Sports and Exercise Medicine MSc in the country. It will help you develop skills working within the multidisciplinary team and progress your medical skills and knowledge. You will build confidence through your academic studies, and reinforce your learning through active practice with patients.
You will be taught by experts and clinician-scientists on our staff who regularly work with elite athletes. Sports medicine is a collaborative discipline, and you will gain experience by working closely with medical doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists and other sports medicine practitioners.
We have an international research profile in Sports and Exercise Medicine. You will be able to work with a wide variety of athletes and dancers, and thus build your research around groups in which you have a particular interest. Many students also go on to publish in peer-reviewed journals – which is a reflection of the quality of our student research output.
The Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine is based within the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. The School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two world-renowned teaching hospitals, St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London, which make an outstanding contribution to modern medicine.
Sport and Exercise Medicine is available to study to MSc, PG Diploma or PG Certificate level, full-time for one year, or part-time from two to four years.
To achieve the certificate you will take four taught modules and the diploma eight taught modules. To achieve the MSc you will take an additional taught module and complete a research project (equivalent to three modules).
