Direct your medical studies towards the innovative and hands-on field of sports and exercise medicine.

Our intercalated BSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine is an exciting, evidence-based programme that gives current medical students the chance to achieve an additional degree in this specialist field in just one year.

With growing interest in sports and leisure activities, together with the problems of obesity and chronic disease, there’s increasing recognition of the importance of treating injuries and preventing illness through exercise.

You’ll gain the knowledge and skills to assess sports injuries and understand relevant treatment options, and a solid understanding of the physiological and psychological benefits of exercise. Taught modules cover detailed musculoskeletal anatomy, medical problems in sport, exercise medicine and physical activity prescription principles, biomechanics and injury rehabilitation.

We place a strong emphasis on paper and quasi-experimental research, with students undertaking both a systematic review and a full research project. Many of our students publish their work in research journals and present at national and international conferences.
