Developing skills to rehabilitate

MSc student Josh Foreman loved the opportunity of putting theory into practice and experiencing what it is like to be a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in a real setting, with real people who have real diseases.

Our department brings together a range of expertise and exercise related disciplines to understand the role of exercise in sustaining health, improving disease outcomes, and enhancing human performance through sport and physical activity.
