Sport Rehabilitators work with patients or athletes with a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, whether it’s managing or treating a long-term medical issue or overseeing their recovery from a shorter term injury.
You’ll therefore need to have the confidence to act with independent autonomy towards your patient’s care when necessary, as well as the ability to work with other healthcare professionals, so a thorough grounding in the likes of physiology, psychology, biomechanics, and strength and conditioning is essential.
Our expertise in these areas is illustrated by our collaborations with FIFA, the International Olympic Committee and the World Anti-Doping Agency and you'll also benefit from having industry-standard facilities right here on campus to develop your skills.
You’ll also spend a minimum of 400 hours on clinical placement gaining real-world experience, with our partners including professional sports clubs such as Hull City, Hull FC and Hull KR, as well as private practitioners.
You could even develop your experience at the University's Health, Injury and Performance (HIP) Hub. This student-led clinic offers appointments to real patients from the local community and gives you the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice by overseeing their assessment, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation as part of your degree.
This degree is accredited by the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT). This means you can apply to BASRaT to become a graduate member at the end of your degree.
