This is a specialised pathway of the MSc Advanced Professional Practice programme.
This part time new MSc course in Musculoskeletal Neuroscience offers musculoskeletal healthcare professionals, such as chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths the opportunity to study modern neuroscience with a focus on the application in a clinical setting.
This is particularly relevant at this time where there is a rapidly developing scientific interest and increasing application of modern clinical neuroscience in managing musculoskeletal* and related conditions.
The Musculoskeletal Neuroscience pathway includes the following:
• Neuropathology and Pathophysiology
• Clinical Neuroscience and Diagnosis
• Clinical Neuroscience and Therapeutics
The neuroscience units on this course adopt a self-directed approach. There is no taught material or attendance required on campus for the neuroscience units, however minimal attendance is required for some of the other units listed in our Unit Breakdown section.
Visit the MSc APP Musculoskeletal Neuroscience Pathway page on the AECC University College website for more details!
This part time MSc course is suitable for all healthcare professionals. The main learning environment is the student's own professional practice and attendance requirements are consequently minimal.
