The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities. Read more
The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities:
-Research into Neurotoxicology and Neuropsychopharmacology (research track). This speciality aims to train future specialists to research into evaluating and characterising the effects of neuroactive substances(effects of neurotoxins from environmental pollutants on living organisms, effects of medicines and abusive drugs on behaviour). The objective is to provide students with multidisciplinary training and the basic and methodological knowledge that enable them to work as researchers in the field of neurotoxicology and psychopharmacology.
-Invasive Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy (professional track). The general aim of this speciality is to learn to examine and treat patients who suffer from problems of neuromuscular pain. Other aims are to use muscle palpation to identify tense bands of muscle and the most common locations for myofascial trigger points (MTP) and to attribute a patient’s pain to the presence of MTP in the corresponding muscles thanks to a knowledge of their pain patterns and the most important semiological characteristics. One of the primary objectives is to correctly apply the main techniques for the conservative and invasive (dry puncture) treatment of MTPs: that is to say, identifying and avoiding the contraindications, risks and complications generated by the various puncture techniques.
-Neurorehabilitation (professional track). The translational objectives of this speciality are to describe the etiopathological reasons for neurological, sensory and cognitive disorders based on experimental data applied to therapeutic situations. This should enable these disorders to be treated using appropriate and well-founded rehabilitation techniques. One of the main objectives is to use such cutting-edge technologies as robotics.

Student Profile

This master’s degree is designed for two types of students: on the one hand, recent graduates who have scientific concerns and who wish to work in the field of knowledge in general and, specifically, on the central and peripheral nervous system; and, on the other, the online component of the research track is designed specifically for professionals who are already working but who would like to do a doctorate on the nervous systems to increase their professional potential.

The aim of the professional specialities is to train professionals to examine and treat patients who suffer from neuromuscular pain and give them extensive knowledge of the central and peripheral nervous system in pathological situations so that they can suggest possible therapies.

These specialities are designed for health professionals who want to acquire new knowledge and abilities to improve their daily practice on issues of the central or peripheral nervous system and who also want to have sufficient scientific training to be able to opt for a doctoral degree related to their profession so that they can lead a clinical research group.

Career Opportunities

Graduates in the Inter-university Master's Degree in Nervous System Sciences: Neurotoxicology, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Neurorehabilitation can work in:
-Biomedical research: researcher in public or private universities, involved in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation.
-Health care: physiotherapist in public or private institutions specializing in myofascial pain syndrome, rehabilitation services or orthopedic departments.
-Therapist specialised in motor, sensory and/or cognitive neurorehabilitation: rehabilitation centres for nerve damage.

Programme Description

With approval from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) this programme allows you to gain the expertise and knowledge to become a practising physiotherapist.

The programme of study addresses the main areas of contemporary physiotherapy practice, namely neuromusculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory and neurorehabilitation. You will learn to think independently and problem-solve in a clinical capacity.

Study within the University is interspersed with clinical placements where you will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience.

On successful completion of the MSc Physiotherapy (pre-registration) programme, graduates will be eligible to apply for membership of the CSP as well as registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.

Clinical Placements

Study within the university is interspersed with clinical placements where you will acquire comprehensive hands-on experience.

Assessment

A number of assessment methods are used in the programme, including coursework, practical examination, presentations and MSc Dissertation.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates have found employment throughout the UK in both the NHS and private practice and have also gained employment overseas. Some of our graduates have also become involved in areas of clinical research.

Our programme is internationally acknowledged and has achieved recognition in a number of countries.

Canada
Upon assessment, The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators have found previous Glasgow Caledonian graduates to have an education that is ‘not substantially different’ from a Canadian physiotherapy education. These graduates were then permitted to attempt the Canadian Physiotherapy Competency Exam.

Australia
We are currently one of a small number of UK physiotherapy courses that the Australian Physiotherapy Council (APC) has deemed equivalent on individual application to a pre-registration physiotherapy course in Australia. Each individual application is assessed by the APC and potentially each programme cohort given equivalency on a "course year" basis.

Overview

The term neuromusculoskeletal refers to the musculoskeletal system and the related neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems. This course enables students to study the health care of patients with neuromusculoskeletal problems from a dynamic and expanding perspective.

The course provides students with a sound academic core to their relevant clinical practice, encourages a broad approach to health provision, and gives a thorough understanding of research methodology. The overall philosophy is to encourage an analytical, questioning attitude, which in turn will lead to an increase in evidence-based practice together with innovation in clinical practice.

Allied health professionals and members of other related disciplines often require both academic accreditation and flexibility when seeking continuing professional development (CPD) and our postgraduate courses endeavour to fulfil these needs. This flexible course is available part-time, or modules can be taken as independent stand-alone programmes of study.

The School of Health & Rehabilitation is based on Keele campus and has a well-established undergraduate physiotherapy programme. It has strong connections both with local clinical units and with other Schools within the University such as the Schools of Nursing & Midwifery, Medicine, and Pharmacy.

The part-time MSc programme can be completed in two years, but students may take up to five years if they wish (modular route). The structure of the course therefore allows flexible learning in accordance with individual student interests and needs.
