In the past 20 years, under the guidance of a professional body – Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA), accredited Exercise Physiologists (EPs) have gained national recognition as the allied health professional with the knowledge and experience to prescribe exercise for people with chronic and complex medical conditions. EPs now have provider status with the Health Insurance Commission (Medicare), as well as many private and government health and compensable insurance schemes.
You’ll develop knowledge and skills in preparation for work in the allied health industry. The course is accredited by ESSA so you’ll will be eligible to apply for accreditation status. You can structure a course that is best tailored to your future requirements and area of specialisation. The course is designed to provide a holistic understanding of the use of exercise as a modality in the treatment of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, metabolic and other chronic and complex conditions.
