Our Sports Medicine program is designed for doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists and exercise scientists* who have a passion for excellence in sports medicine practice, and assisting athletes of all ages and abilities to optimise healthy exercise participation and drive best performance.

Offered 100% online, this program will equip you with the skills to advance sports medicine best practice locally and internationally, with athletes of all ages and abilities.

You can choose to progress from the one-year Graduate Certificate to the Master of Sports Medicine, or apply directly to the Masters and exit early with a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma.

There is a unique pathway for exercise scientists that moves from the Specialist and Graduate Certificates in Sports Medicine directly to a Master of Sports Rehabilitation.

A masters level qualification is integral to extending your career in sports medicine and is often required for the award of professional specialist titling. It is a tangible component of lifelong learning, developing and recognising the required specialist knowledge to provide high quality healthcare and performance enhancement to athletes of all ages and abilities, in different sports and exercise contexts.Dr Sonya Moore Course Coordinator Sports Medicine, and Subject Development Coordinator, The Modern Athlete
