Why study the Graduate Certificate in Sports Medicine?

The Sports Medicine programs have been created specifically for general practitioners who want to develop or advance their knowledge and skills in sports medicine. These programs provide a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to prevention, treatment and management of sports injuries. You will develop the clinical knowledge, research and practical skills for evidence-based practice in sports medicine. You will be well placed to treat different types of exercising individuals (e.g. athletes and amateur sports people), and different types of injuries sustained during sporting activities and other physical activity (e.g. muscular injuries and lumbar region injuries).

An understanding of the fundamental principles of sports medicine and its applications will serve as an important backdrop within a general practice setting. These programs offer flexible, work-based learning and are delivered entirely online using proven online learning pedagogies (such as hands-on video tutorials) and discussion forums to allow contact with expert staff and other general practitioners. Assessment projects are highly practical and industry relevant and they can also be customised to your own development needs.
