Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology
UniSC - University of the Sunshine Coast - Sunshine Coast

Course outline

Exercise is a powerful tool to improve human performance and health outcomes. Become qualified to help people live healthier lives. 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 heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and mental health. You’ll train to prevent and manage musculoskeletal injuries in sport and recreation as you study anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, assessment, programming, psychology and nutrition. You’ll test and train athletes in UniSC’s AIS-accredited sport science labs and qualify to work in hospitals, health clinics, rehabilitation facilities, gyms and more.
