Student review
The course is aligned towards evidence-based practice, so heavy on research. Complete medical grade anatomy using cadavers in our second year. Provides you with a strong exercise physiology background. Only cover healthy populations so it does not cover a lot of injury management or methods of identifying strengths and weaknesses in a client or how to improve them.
