Course Information

Exercise is a powerful tool to improve human performance and health outcomes. This program qualifies you to work as an exercise physiologist, and to use the science of exercise to prevent and manage chronic conditions, injuries and to help people live healthier lives.

Like physiotherapists, exercise physiologists work with clients in healthcare settings and sports to prevent disease and injuries, and to manage health, lifestyle and behaviour changes.

In this program you will:

  • Learn how to use exercise to prevent and manage chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and mental health conditions.

  • Train to prevent and manage musculoskeletal injuries in sport and recreational settings.

  • Study anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, exercise assessment, exercise programming, psychology and nutrition.

  • Build your professional skills through 500 hours of supervised work placement in hospitals, clinics and sport settings.

  • Test and train athletes in USC’s AIS-accredited sport science labs.

  • Qualify to work as an exercise physiologist in hospitals, health clinics, rehabilitation facilities, community health, occupational rehabilitation, gyms and more.
