The programme is suitable for physiotherapists, osteopaths and doctors.

This internationally renowned programme is open to doctors and physiotherapists. As the longest-established Sports and Exercise Medicine MSc in the country, we have a prestigious history. The programme is based on the philosophy of total care for the athlete and the promotion of physical activity in the general population. Working in sport is a largely practical discipline and the programme's emphasis lies firmly on regular clinical experience. You will benefit from regular contact with members of the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine as well as visiting clinicians and lecturers who are experienced sport medicine specialists.

The Centre is ideally situated on the same campus as the sports injury, physiotherapy, podiatry and the interdisciplinary combined sports clinics. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to attend recognised external clinics around London, as well as the chance to attend sporting events and visits to national centres of excellence where possible.

Successful alumni have gone on to hold pivotal positions in sports medicine across the UK and internationally, including the Chief Medical Officer to the British Olympic Association and London 2012 and the Medical Director to the English Institute of Sport.

The Centre is renowned in the UK for its academic strength and excellence. Lectures are delivered by national experts; from cutting edge scientists to physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals working with world-class athletes.

This programme will:

-Offer you mastery of foundation concepts and skills in Sports and Exercise Medicine.
-Give you the knowledge and skills to assess sports injuries and to understand their treatment options, as well as understanding the physiological and psychological benefits of exercise and its use as a health tool.
-Allow you regular clinical contact with athletes and sportspeople.
-Introduce you to visiting lecturers, who are experts in the field of Sports Medicine.

Why study your MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary?
The Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine is based at the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two world renowned teaching hospitals, St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London, which have made, and continue to make, an outstanding contribution to modern medicine. We were one of the top five in the UK for medicine in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.

This programme is the longest-established Sports and Exercise Medicine MSc in the country.

It is unique in the UK for the delivery of integrated academic and practical tuition. Lectures are delivered by national experts.
Core clinician-scientists on staff consult to elite athletes, we have an international research profile in Sports and Exercise Medicine.
Our staff will work closely with you to nurture your research interests and to develop your clinical ability in Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Many students also go on to publish in peer-reviewed journals, a reflection of the quality of our student research output.
Facilities

You will have access to Queen Mary’s comprehensive libraries, including the Postgraduate Reading Room, and The British Library can also be accessed as a research resource. We subscribe to many journals in sport and exercise medicine. You can access electronic journals online.

The Human Performance Laboratory (HPL) at QMUL combines the expertise of sports medicine clinicians, surgeons, engineers and sports scientists with state-of-the-art physiological testing and motion analysis equipment. This collaborative venture offers clinical, educational, research and athlete support service applications in the laboratory or field based settings.

The capabilities of the HPL can be broadly divided into two areas: musculoskeletal biomechanics and physiological testing.

Musculoskeletal biomechanics

The HPL carries 4 Codamotion Cx1 infra-red scanning units that are used extensively for 3-dimensional motion analysis. This system is fully integrated with 2 ground embedded Kistler force plates and a 16 channel wireless EMG system. The integration of these systems allows for full analysis of movement, forces associated with movement and measuring muscular effort during movement. In addition, the HPL also boasts a 64 channel EMG system for multichannel work and an isokinetic dynamometer, which can be used for both research and rehabilitation.

Physiological testing

Detailed analysis of pulmonary gas exchange can be made using an online gas analysis system, in addition to cardiac monitoring using a 12-lead ECG system, during exercise on a treadmill or the electromagnetically braked cycle ergometer. Measures can also be made out in the field, from simple tests of flexibility, strength, speed, power and cardiorespiratory fitness, to comprehensive measurement of expired air using the portable on-line gas analysis system.

Programme description

Research in the area of strength and conditioning has increased dramatically in the past decade, an increase in focus that has inspired this innovative programme.

Strength & Conditioning has emerged as a distinct and popular area of expertise in sport science, predominantly from within the discipline of physiology although frequently requiring knowledge and understanding of inter-disciplinary applied sport science and coaching, providing the rationale for this programme.

The University of Edinburgh's programme combines both the theoretical and practical elements of strength and conditioning to identify and examine a wide range of academic and practitioner needs. Students gain excellent applied experience and professional development opportunities in parallel with the taught programme, using established links with local and national sports teams and governing bodies.

The major focus of the programme is on performance sport, although other areas such as exercise and rehabilitation are also covered, reflecting the range of exercise and sports contexts that the strength and conditioning practitioner may work in.

Programme structure

Your learning will comprise traditional lectures, tutorials and practical sessions.

Courses:

Understanding Research Concepts
Research Process
Professional Skills in Development Environments
Conditioning Physiology
Physio-mechanical Aspects of Resistance Training
Nutritional Factors & Ergogenic Aids
Paediatric Factors for Training
Environmental Factors for Training

To complete the MSc degree, you will also produce an independently researched dissertation.

Career opportunities

The qualification and skills you gain in this programme will complement the applied experience and any professional accreditation for those aspiring to be practitioners at the cutting edge of strength and conditioning. Primary roles exist in the sports performance area, but you may also apply your skills to work in the areas of exercise and fitness, rehabilitation and the wider sports industry.

The masters degree is also a springboard for further research, either within academia or the private sector. The highly transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and project management can also be applied to roles in any field.

Additional entry requirements

Such cases are considered on an individual basis and some of the following relevant factors will be considered:

academic qualifications
strengths and weaknesses in grade profiles related to the programme
applied experience as an athlete
applied experience working with other coaches and athletes
applied experience delivering as a coach
professional training in strength and conditioning
professional accreditation in strength and conditioning
