This internationally renowned programme is open to doctors and physiotherapists. The programme is based on the philosophy of total care for the athlete and the promotion of physical activity in the general population. It is unique in the UK for the delivery of integrated academic and practical tuition.
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 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.
Many of our alumni now work in both professional and amateur sport, 14 worked at Athens 2004 Olympic Games, and the Centre was involved for the bid for London 2012 Olympic Games. Programme outline
