The two-year Master's programme is meant for students who are fascinated by the complexity of human movement. You will study human movement from multiple perspectives, using theories from Medicine, Biology, Mathematics and Behavioural Sciences.

In this programme, you will acquire an advanced theoretical understanding of human movement. You will also gain research skills and professional skills, learning to apply your knowledge in a practical setting.

The programme has two central themes. In 'motor function and cognition in healthy ageing' you will explore how physical activity and innovative solutions can prevent chronic diseases, and preserve cognitive function. You will also study slow aging. In 'rehabilitation and functional recovery' you will improve your understanding of impaired movement and the restoration of functioning in rehabilitation practices.

It is possible to do a crossover between the Master's programmes in Human Movement Sciences and Sport Sciences.

Why in Groningen?

- Science-based multidisciplinary 2-year program
- Provides academic, research, and applied/professional skills in ambitious academic medical research working environment
- Opportunity to continue in a Human Movement Science Master-PhD trajectory

Job perspectives

After graduation, you can continue your academic career in a PhD trajectory or perform research at health care research institutes. In addition, you can consult at rehabilitation centres, hospitals and specialized care facilities. It is also possible to evaluate and develop ergonomic or orthopaedic products or to develop health and welfare policies for government agencies. With a teacher's certificate you can work as a lecturer in education.

Job examples

- Developer
Evaluate and develop ergonomic or orthopedic products in/or outside industry

- Researcher
Study for a PhD or perform research at health care research centers

- Consultant
Consult at rehabilitation centers, hospitals, or specialized care facilities

- Teacher/lecturer
Teacher/Lecturer of health and exercise science in Higher Education

Accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, this programme provides you with the comprehensive knowledge, and practical and technical skills required for the role of a cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgical care practitioner (SCP).

Course details]

With the support of your consultant surgeon mentor, your clinical area and the University, you study four modules that provide you with the necessary theoretical knowledge and skills to meet the requirements of an SCP. You also show your commitment to the ethos of a professional life and responsibilities which include lifelong learning, reflective practice, self-knowledge and continuing professional development to function as a valued member of the cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgical team.

This course:
-Provides you with the detailed and comprehensive knowledge, and the operative and technical skills needed as a SCP in cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgery
-Develops your critical thinking and decision-making skills to practice autonomously within the guidelines of your SCP role in cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgery
-Promotes the ethos of lifelong learning and continuing professional development to function as a valued member of the extended cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgical healthcare team
-Develops your research skills to search, retrieve, critically evaluate and synthesise the current evidence base underpinning cardiothoracic, general or orthopedic surgical care practice
-Develops you as a practitioner providing high-quality care throughout the patient journey in cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgery based on sound clinical evidence and good judgement.

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

What you study

Year 1 core modules
-Developing Core Surgical Care Practitioner Skills
-Evidence-based Practice

Year 2 core modules
-Cardiothoracic Surgical Care Practitioner Skills
or
-General Surgery Surgical Care Practitioner Skills
or
-Orthopaedic Surgical Care Practitioner Skills

Modules offered may vary.

Teaching

The theory aspect of this programme is delivered in three block weeks at the University at the start of each semester. You also work with an identified consultant surgeon mentor in the field of cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgery.

You are taught through five one-week study blocks in Year 1, and three one-week study blocks in Year 2. We use a variety of teaching methods in conjunction with practice-based learning in your workplace.

You are assessed through a variety of methods including practice-based competencies, a viva voce and written case studies.

Employability

On completion you are qualified as an SCP in cardiothoracic, general or orthopaedic surgery. These courses enable you to access a second specialist module independently, or progress to complete an MSc.

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.
