What is this course about?

CSU's Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) aims to offer students a flexible set of professional development and employment pathway options.

Students graduating from this course will possess a postgraduate qualification in Exercise Science, a field of work in which a three year undergraduate qualification is increasingly seen as insufficient.

The objective of the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) is to develop rehabilitation knowledge and competencies in the following areas:

  • Cardiorespiratory
  • Metabolic
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Neurological
  • Mental Health
  • Cancer.

The course is also designed to achieve a generic set of knowledge and competencies.
These include: 

  • Ethics

    Professional recognition

    This course is designed to prepare graduates for work as an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), a title that is awarded by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). At present, ESSA are considering an application from the School for the course to be accredited under the National University Course Accreditation Program (NUCAP).

    Federal Government approval for AEPs to join the Medicare list of allied health professions only became effective in 2006. Therefore, the next five to ten years will see the professional evolution of this new field of work.
